New Study Shows that Natural Flood Management Could Reduce Flooding

Tuesday, May 23, 2017

A new modelling study, commissioned by The Rivers Trust, shows that extensive and appropriately located Natural Flood Management (NFM) could make a significant difference to flood flows which would compliment traditional engineering measures.

The Rivers Trust has been working with JBA Consulting, Lancaster University and United Utilities to investigate how extensive NFM in large recently flooded catchments could have reduced flood flows in extreme storms, such as Storm Desmond in December 2015, which caused an estimated  £500million of damage.
