    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.
