This project tests and demonstrates use of the CIRIA reservoir risk assessment method (CIRIA Report 542) on Agency flood storage reservoirs.

The principal output is the R & D Technical Report W5B-028/TR1. This reports on the use of the CIRIA method for Agency flood storage reservoirs. It includes the results of an initial trial application to five reservoirs, a review of relative risks, a review of the CIRIA methodology, and recommendations for development and application of the methodology for flood storage reservoirs.
