Climate Change and the Hydraulic Design of Sewerage Systems Volume III: Sewerage System Modelling; IIID Increase in Mean and Extreme Sea Levels around the UK

Price: £11  

This report is part of a major study on the impact of climate change on sewerage hydraulic design The project was wide ranging, but with a principle focus on the performance of sewerage systems under future (year 2080) rainfall conditions and what changes might be needed in the hydraulic design of sewerage systems to address any problems that climate change might pose. Other issues include a summary of international drainage practice and predicted changes in sea levels and river flows.

This report is one of 13 documents collated in 4 volumes. This document is one of four in volume III  Sewerage System Modelling. The other reports in volume III cover: 

  • Evaluation of the changes in the performance of sewerage systems due to climate change using 5 models of selected drainage systems applied to 4 climate regions
  • Use of simple models to evaluate changes in runoff and water quality for 7 climate regions
  • A summary of the predicted changes in river flows over the next century.

This report reviews the available information on mean and extreme sea levels around the UK and the potential impacts of climate change on design conditions for sewerage systems.
