A study/investigation regarding flooding.
To ascertain what works must be undertaken on flood risk sites to ensure demountable flood defence is best utilised with maximum effectiveness and seek a detailed understanding of the safety issues and practicalities of erecting the Geo-Design demountable barrier including:

  • Carry out trial deployment of temporary flood barrier system

  • Carry out 2nd trial deployment of temporary flood barrier system on completed site

  • Produce flood barrier deployment plans for all of the at risk sites

  • Produce permanent works plan for at risk sites to facilitate and maximise the effectiveness of the temporary flood barrier and carry out works on trial sites

  • Develop model deployment plan to maximise the effectiveness of the temporary flood barrier

  • Develop model permanent works plan for at risk sites to facilitate and maximise the effectiveness of the temporary flood barrier and carry out works on trial sites

  • Produce permanent solutions options plan to feed into Capital investment schemes

  • Obtain LIDAR data for 1 in 100 year flood risk sites to give a greater understanding of the flooding profile of a site also to indicate low points on site and show potential flooding routes onto site.
