August Meeting

Natural Flood Management

Alasdair Maxwell of the Environment Agency and Zoe Hancock of Wessex Water will talk about Natural Flood Management, and how this might relate to the River Avon and the River Biss, catchments upstream from Bradford on Avon

“Natural flood management (NFM) is managing flood risk by protecting, restoring and emulating the natural regulating function of catchments and rivers, has the potential to provide environmentally sensitive approaches to minimising flood risk, to reduce flood risk in areas where hard flood defences are not feasible, and to increase the lifespan of existing flood defences.” More
