Royal Highland Show
We enjoyed attending the Royal Highland Show this year, hosted by the James Hutton Institute. Our flooding models attracted alot of attention from politicians, agencies and the general public. I would estimate that 90% of people guessed correctly, which model would flood first! Everyone discovered that by planting more trees in the correct places, installing measures like field bunds, allowing rivers to follow their natural path and connect to their floodplain, can all combine to slow the flow of floodwaters locally.
Natural Flood Management
CNPA / James Hutton Institute / FCS / Forest Research
Project Status: Current
We are developing a range of techniques that use natural or semi natural engineering methods to slow the flow of water through the river system. These range from large scale tree planting in the uplands, attenuation features in agricultural areas and green infrastructure in urban areas.
