These reports support the water and flood risk analysis in the consultation on the Airport Commission’s shortlisted options for additional airport capacity.
The ‘Baseline’ report considers how:
- water quality
- water quantity
- flood risk
will develop in areas surrounding Heathrow and Gatwick in the absence of an airport scheme, over a 60 year period.
Two further reports examine:
- the impacts of schemes on levels of water quantity and quality at the affected airport sites and environs
- how the creation and operation of each scheme will affect flood risks for the airports and adjacent areas of flood plains
