Flood Risk Assessment

We can carry out a flood risk assessment (FRA) to assess the risk of flooding from all flooding mechanisms, identify flood mitigation measures and provide advice on actions to be taken before and during a flood.

The sources of water which produce floods include:

  • Groundwater (saturated groundwater)
  • Vadose (water flowing the ground in an unsaturated state)
  • Surface water
  • Artificial water (burst water mains, canals or reservoirs)
  • Rivers, streams or watercourses
  • Sewers and drains
  • Flooding of low-lying coastal regions due to sea level rise
