PROJECT SUMMARY

This project produced a framework to direct new research, development and demonstration projects to support the effective implementation of integrated urban drainage (IUD) systems, and ensure that measures to counter and manage flooding in drainage systems are built into new development to protect property and life. The report from the project sets out a national programme for IUD research consisting of 75 projects to fill our current knowledge gaps in managing urban flooding, providing an opportunity to collaborate on further research to develop a comprehensive underpinning framework for IUD in the future.
