Hydrometic Monitoring for the EA Flood Warning Expansion Project
May 2022 @ 12:30 pm - 1:30 pmFree
Hosted by the CIWEM Rivers & Coastal Group
The Environment Agency’s Flood Warning Expansion Project (FWEP) aims to deliver flood warnings to all properties at high risk of fluvial flooding in England. To achieve this, the FWEP monitoring team has significantly increased the capability of the Environment Agency to warn and inform the public of flooding. As part of this programme there have been nearly 200 hydrometric monitoring sites installed in 18 months to help provide flood warnings to almost ten thousand properties at high risk of flooding.
Members of the FWEP project team will present how they devised a low cost, small footprint, low carbon, adaptable, risk reduced solution that will potentially change the future of hydrometric monitoring within the Environment Agency.
This webinar is open to all and no previous hydrometric or flood warning knowledge is required to attend this presentation.
Part of the CIWEM Flood Resilience digital series.
