Details

The first report in this series covers Phase 1 of the development of a Digital Good Practice Manual, providing a checklist and guidance for assessing whether a flood risk or land drainage scheme represents good environmental practice and, if not, what further mitigation measures/techniques could be used without adversely effecting the flood defence or land drainage objectives. This report covers activities on rivers, lakes, estuaries and coastal waters aiming to comply with requirements of the Water Framework Directive (WFD) but without having adverse impacts on their use (and taking into account costs). The Digital Good Practice Manual is provided in a parallel report.
