Flood Sensitive Sites

It is becoming increasingly apparent, particularly over the last few years, that a significant number of properties are prone to flooding or are at significant risk of flooding. By determining the cause and extent of the flood risk, it is possible to take action to minimise the risk of future flooding and any resultant disruption and expense.

The Benefits

A professional study of the flood risk of a property, prepared by Cole Easdon Consultants will:

  • Identify the cause and provide a quantified assessment of flood risk to the property
  • Outline the actions required to ensure a sustainable drainage system for new developments in flood risk areas
  • Propose cost effective improvements to reduce¬†flood risk
  • Incorporate features such as permanent ponds, which can improve the local amenity and provide an environment to support biodiversity
  • Reduce the risk of flooding to the property and the surrounding locality
  • Improve the quality of downstream water

How We Can Help

As experts in water management we can provide some or all of the following services to help our clients:

  • Desk studies utilising existing flood records and understanding possible causes of historic flood events
  • Site walkovers to identify possible flood flow routes
  • Survey of ground levels, watercourses and hydraulic structures within the catchment
  • Hydraulic modelling of watercourses and sewers using Flood Modeller software or WINDES software as appropriate to identify flow routes and potential flood volumes
  • Technical assistance to understand surface water flooding (e.g. drainage exceedance modelling to determine flood volumes, velocities and mapping of flood flow routes)
  • Preparation of design solutions to reduce flood risk
