This research related to a field trial of a demountable flood management system in York in spring 2008 to protect 14 houses from flooding from the River Ouse. The field trial provided evidence on what issues may be faced during the planning and installation of demountable flood defences in urban areas. As a follow-up to this work more detailed research will now take place on a range of temporary and demountable flood barriers (See SC080019).
