Event description

Climate change predictions indicate significant increase in storm intensities as this century progresses – it’s never been more important to remove flow from our sewer networks.

At this event, we will demonstrate a storm water management based approach to sewer flooding at a catchment level, using innovative modelling techniques to better understand flow paths and inform in solution development.

The Prestwick Strategic Flooding Project deliver’s a ‘no more in, and what’s in out’ approach to flood risk management.

Part of the CIWEM Flood Resilience series.
