This is a joint evening webinar organised by the Chartered Institution of Water and Environmental Management (CIWEM) East Midlands branch, CIWEM West Midlands branch, CIWEM Rivers & Coastal Group, ICE East Midlands and ICE West Midlands.

Burton Flood Risk Management Scheme is a scheme to protect 4500 homes and 1000 businesses from the River Trent. The project is a 4.5 year construction project costing over £30m.
