CIRIA – Guidance on communicating local flood risk

To support local authorities and other risk management authorities, the Construction Industry Research and Information Association (CIRIA), the Environment Agency and a wide range of partners want to share, augment and develop good practice on communicating local flood risk in the form of surface runoff, groundwater and ordinary watercourses flooding effectively to the public.

In partnership with Arup, FHRC is collating research, evidence, case studies and practical experience to develop easy to use good practice advice for all flood risk management authorities (local authorities, regulators, water and sewerage companies etc) involved in communicating with and engaging the public on local flood risk management. The guidance will be available from the CIRIA website early in 2013.
