Hull was significantly impacted by the major flood event in 2007 when 8,600 homes and 1,300 businesses were affected. RPS has since been deeply involved in investigating, understanding and reducing flood risk across the Hull and Haltemprice catchment. A complex integrated catchment model has been developed by combining Yorkshire Water, Environment Agency, East Riding of Yorkshire Council and Hull City Council data for the sewers, watercourses and overland flow paths.
The model has been used to identify major investment schemes, culminating in the design and construction of the Willerby and Derringham Flood Alleviation Scheme (WaDFAS), the Cottingham Orchard Park Flood Alleviation Scheme (COPFAS) and the Anlaby and East Ella Flood Alleviation Scheme (AEEFAS) (approx. £55million overall costs).
Hull has many unique features driven by its topography, geology and the historical developments of its sewerage network and waterways. These specific challenges require bespoke solutions and there is a clear desire among the partner organisations to work together to drive contemporary and sustainable blue-green solutions. The primary solutions have seen the use of large flood storage lagoons and the management of overland flow routes to deal with significant land drainage and pluvial runoff.
The approach requires a thorough understanding of the complex drainage interactions together with multi-agency working and progressive thinking to deliver effective flood risk management. This presentation will review the challenges in understanding and resolving these issues.
