SEPA publishes plans to deliver Flood Warning Service over next 5 years

Friday, February 10, 2017

On February 8th, at Scotland's Annual Flood Risk Management Conference, SEPA launched a Flood Warning Development Framework for 2017-2021.

Last year Scotland experienced some of its most severe flooding with storms Desmond, Eva and Frank causing sustained and persistent rainfall from December 2015 into January 2016.

Flood forecasting and warning is an essential service to help communities be aware and prepared for flood events such as those witnessed last year, and can help reduce the impact which flooding has on people's lives.
