A Flood Risk Assessment is a process used to examine the potential for flooding in an area. It evaluates factors such as watercourse size, landscape type, ground cover and soil permeability, among other things. It also assesses the risk posed by existing and proposed development activities.
Our West Midlands flood risk assessment will provide you with an understanding of how flood risks might impact your property or development. This understanding will help inform your plans for future development and mitigation, such as installing a soakaway or making other changes to reduce the risk of flooding.
What is a Soakaway?
A soakaway design is an underground trench or pit designed to capture and disperse surface water run-off quickly, reducing the chances of flooding in the area. The soakaway can be filled with rocks, gravel or other materials that will absorb and disperse water quickly.
