A New Flood Hydrology Road Map for the UK

The Environment Agency are seeking views on the future direction of flood hydrology research and would like your views on the draft material. Further details available here.

The survey will be open from Monday 29th April until Sunday 19th May 2019.

Project Overview:

The roadmap project will:

  • Develop a vision of flood hydrology 25 years from now,
  • Create a list of prioritised work areas to influence research councils, our joint EA/Defra R&D programme, the wider research community and operational work,
  • Create a strong community of flood hydrology expertise,
  • Improve awareness of how important.

Who is it for?
The project will cover all inland flood risk sources: rivers and lakes, surface water, groundwater and reservoirs. At the Environment Agency, our responsibility is limited to England, but the Joint R&D Programme serves England and Wales. By working with SEPA, Northern Ireland Dept. for Infrastructure and the right partners, we hope our project outputs will be used across the UK.

What next?
The project has generated valuable material from questionnaire responses and at the workshop. We would now like your feedback on this work and any new ideas before we finally prioritise work areas, write a delivery plan and create the flood hydrology road map document.
