Hydrological Modelling and Flood Alleviation Solutions
An analysis of the hydrology and topology of the Slad Brook in order to implement long-term, naturalistic, soft-engineered permanent solutions for flooding problems.
Upper Slad Valley Holistic Water Management Project
This paper responds to landowners in the Upper Slad Valley who wish to develop standing water resources on their properties and explores any opportunities this may provide for flood attenuation and other benefits.
This report compiles evidence for the causes of frequent flooding at Bridgend, and puts forward a set of solutions to prevent this. It applies Water21 principles of multi-benefit (least cost) land use, holistic planning, community support and goodwill, providing a long-term, comprehensive solution.
Lessons learned – Stroud Valleys community-led water management
Important lessons learned from the early stages of community-led water management in Slad Valley, Stroud.
Site visit to an OceansESU Pesticide Treatment Reedbed
An independent report reviewing innovative reed-bed work by Oceans-ESU.
Wetland-Biomass Wastewater Utility
An investigation of alternative schemes to resolve long-standing gross sewage pollution flowing from the unsewered hamlet of Claypits.
Exemplar of Innovative Alleviation of Flooding Consequences
Stroud ‘Exemplar’ – Defra/Partners Pilot with Prof. Gerald P. Noone, MBE, and Julian P. Jones.
Flood Risk Assessments
This paper responds to a need for Local Planning Authorities to understand better ways of interpreting Flood Risk for planning and sustainable development policies. It also provides an overview of the main roles and responsibilities of the various stakeholders.
Better management of river catchments for flood risks and biodiversity
How river catchments can be better managed to control flood risk and provide biodiversity benefits. A critical discussion of options and experience and suggestions for ways forward.
Hydropower Turbine Comparison Study
This report compares the effectiveness of 3 different turbine types (Crossflow turbine, Kaplan turbine, and Archimedes’ Screw), using varying development scenarios and examines some of the uncertainties that exist.
Biodiversity effects of small-head hydropower
Keele University study on the effects of small-head hydropower on river biodiversity.
Heritage withy-wetland sewage treatment study
A village scale sewerage and water supply system featuring heritage withy wetland sewage treatment.
