    Natural Flood Management

    Peter Jones, Managing Director, Waterco Consultants

    NFM is promoted on the basis that it is both a lower cost solution and has wider environmental benefits than traditional 'hard engineering' approaches.
    There is no problem in convincing people of its merits; but difficulties arise when answering questions such as: "how much will it reduce flow?" and "what will it cost?"
     

    There is no charge for this event.

    Spaces are strictly limited by the size of the visitor centre so prior booking is highly reccomended.

    For more information please contact Pedr Jones.

    To book a place for this meeting please use our online ticket service.

    North West Transitional and Coastal Waters Workshop (1)

    10:00
    15:00

    River Basin Management Planning - 2015-2021
    North West Transitional and Coastal Waters Workshop

    Lancaster University, Environment Centre, LA1 4YQ

    Hosted in cooperation with the Environment Agency. 

     

    A key issue in the north west is high/increasing levels of phytoplankton and dissolved inorganic nitrogen (DIN) in the transitional and coastal waters that enter the Irish Sea.  As part of the consultation on the draft River Basin Management Plan (RBMP) the Environment Agency is holding this workshop with three main aims:

    • Present the issues with Phytoplankton and DIN reported in the draft RBMP to external and interested partners.
    • Discuss the issues with a wide variety of individuals and groups, to help better understand what might be driving nutrient inputs and cycling and what the consequences, if any, might be.
    • Seek views and suggestions on potential measures and actions for the 2015-2021 RBMP and in the longer term.

    Do you have an interest in these waters? Do you have knowledge or information that would help our investigations? Are there opportunities for joint working in this area? If so then we would like to hear from you.

    Programme

    10.00   Arrival / Registration
    10.30   Environment Agency presentations on the DIN problem and existing understanding
    12.15   Lunch break (lunch will be provided) 
    13.00   Workshop sessions and group feedback

    This event is open to CIWEM members and non-members with a relevant interest.  Numbers are limited to 60 places on a 'first come first served' basis.  Please confirm your attendance by registering using the booking web site.
