Surface Water Assets - A review of the extent of surface water assets in England and Wales

Price: £19  

The natural drainage of the land has developed into a multitude of assets to facilitate drainage, with varying degrees of regulation and ownership. This multi-ownership of surface water assets makes the management of surface water a protracted and difficult process in resolving surface water problems. There is an emergent debate about how surface water drainage, highway drainage and other surface water assets should be managed to allow a holistic view of the system capacity and address the flooding/environmental risks arising from such systems. This report seeks to inform that debate through an initial quantification of the size, scale, condition and current cost of the asset base, as well as the risks, benefits and regulatory implications associated with any potential change to ownership.
