The project produced two main deliverables: Firstly, a report reviewing the performance of Extreme Rainfall Alerts (ERAs), looking at recorded instances of flooding in association with issued ERAs in 3 case study areas. Secondly, a report considering existing local arrangements for issuing flood warnings for surface water, reviewing the wider options for the development of such warnings in the future, and making suggestions as to how such warnings might be developed.

A brief summary document covering the main findings and suggestions has also been produced. For information as to how to access these deliverables please contact
