The CIWEM West Midlands Branch and Rivers and Coastal Group invite you to a summer afternoon conference in the heart of the Cotswolds. Find out how River and Coastal management practices have changed over the last 70 years and learn about new approaches in the industry. Hear from a former Chair of the Rivers and Coastal Group Jackie Banks and her rich experience working in the area. Find out from Andrew Waite of JBA about how flood modelling techniques have changed over time and how the latest approaches are being used locally. Hear about a local scheme to manage flood risk from Severn Trent Water. Finish off your afternoon with a chance to explore Natural Flood Management (NFM) in action.

The meeting will be held in the flagship Stroud NFM catchment. This project has over 250 interventions reducing flood risk in Stroud. Delegates will receive a guided tour of the project in this Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and see first-hand the interventions in the catchment. The project officers from Stroud District Council, National Trust and Environment Agency will share valuable insight to some of the challenges and successes with NFM projects.

Members and non-members are welcome and the event will also include a short talk on routes to CIWEM membership. Come along and find out how CIWEM can help you in your career and take the opportunity to network with other like-minded professionals.

JBA Consulting are proud sponsors of the 2018 - 19 CIWEM West Midlands Branch Programme.
