PROJECT SUMMARY

This project took forward work from two earlier trials to test and disseminate the use of new technologies to issue flood warnings to local communities, to ensure they would be more targetted and resilient. The project field tested prototype local warning devices in Cumbria. The tests did not prove to be fully successful but the concept was welcomed by the community, and findings are being taken forward through the EA's Horizon Scanning team as part of their technology tracking work.
