Water and flood risk analysis of the Airports Commission's shortlisted options for additional airport capacity.
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
