Role of Groundwater in Flooding Events (FLOOD 1)

FLOOD 1 will achieve an understanding of groundwater induced flooding events in the Chalk catchments of the INTERREG III region that have caused damage costing in one recent winter alone more than a million in the Brighton area and tens of millions of Euros in the Somme basin.Existing flood forecasting tools are inadequate because they do not take into account groundwater-induced flooding processes which this project seeks to addressThe project will allow improved flood prediction, control and alleviation, leading to more informed development planning and significant reduction of costs to the local communities.
