Framework for Developing a Stormwater Management Business Case
This report provides a framework for water utilities seeking to make a positive business case for catchment-wide stormwater management programmes. The approach is consistent with the requirements of the Drainage Strategy Framework and is applicable in all UK jurisdictions. The research is based on literature review and on consultation with those direcly involved in drainage planning as well as other interested parties.
The report recommends that water and sewerage companies work collaboratively with partners to test the benefits of stormwater management programmes as an effective response to climate change, urban creep and population growth pressures. Adopting as standard practice the UK specific tools currently being developed (in other research through CIRIA) to quantify benefits from sustainable drainage techniques is also recommended, so that our understanding of the balance between costs and benefits of stormwater management can be improved.
