PROJECT SUMMARY

This project developed a range of analysis tools that will help the Environment Agency and other organisations involved in flood planning to identify where Flood Incident Management (FIM) could be improved. The approaches used included modelling FIM systems to gauge where improvements are required and tested them using scenarios based on Towyn, on the North Wales coast, which has previously experienced severe flooding.
