PROJECT SUMMARY

This project delivered a scoping study to assess the need to review and rewrite the Interim Guide to Quantitative Risk Assessment (for Reservoir Safety) which was originally published in 2004. As part of the scoping study views from the reservoir profession were sought to identify problems in application and their needs. The study identified a need to rework the Guide to ensure that it would be of use to a wider range of reservoir owner and industry needs, as well as meshing into current UK Government flood risk assessment policy and practice.
