IMPLEMENTATION OF DROUGHT RISK MANANGEMENT PLANS IN REGIONAL WATER COMPANIES, KOSOVO
For: Kosovo Inter-Ministerial Water Council, Office of the Prime Minister - 2016
Appointed and funded by the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation, the Consultant was tasked with implementing the National Drought Risk Management Guidelines (GIZ 2015) within three of the 7 Regional Water Companies. Detailed activities included training workshops in drought management and water resources planning, detailed support and mentoring of RWC staff in demand management and water conservation methods, and completion of the draft DRMPs for each RWC. Activities also included implementation of precipitation monitoring in each RWC, and development of early warning systems for drought awareness using the SPI methodology. Training was provided to the Kosovo Hydrometeorological Institute in this same activity.

DEVELOPMENT OF A NATIONAL DROUGHT FRAMEWORK, KOSOVO
For: Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) (Albania) - 2014
As part of the GIZ Regional Climate Adaptation Programme the consultant was appointed to take forward model guidelines for the implementation of Drought Action Plans in Kosovo and Albania, based on previous work done by the Consultant for SDC in 2010/11. This required consultation with Regional Water Companies (RWCs) in these countries, and the development of detailed and practical action plans at company level. Guidelines were based on EU policy guidance and best practice developed in western Europe. The Consultant developed innovative hydrometeorological indicators and probabilistic measures to implement a robust formalized drought monitoring and warning system used at national level.

DEVELOPMENT OF REGIONAL FLOOD EARLY WARNING SYSTEM, ALBANIA, KOSOVO, MACEDONIA, MONTENEGRO
For: Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) (Albania) - 2013
As part of the Climate Change Adaptation in Western Balkans programme, the German Government is supporting the implementation of a regional Flood Early Warning System for all of the south-west Balkans covering five countries and multiple catchments. Brian was appointed directly by GIZ (Albania) to prepare the procurement specifications and develop an implementation strategy for the prioritised hydro-meteorological Stations across four contributing countries, requiring evaluations of hydrometric, telemetry, software, and staff training needs.

NATIONAL FLOOD AND DROUGHT RISK MANAGEMENT FRAMEWORKS
For: Kosovo Water Task Force (Office of the Prime Minister) - 2011
The Swiss Cooperation Office appointed the Consultant to provide high level support to the Kosovo Government in the fields of drought and flood risk management strategies. Two complementary frameworks were proposed and published at the national scale promoting international best practice in flood and drought risk management, within the practical realities of a poor national economy and defunct infrastructure. The study included proposals for key Government Agencies (MESP and KEPA), Municipalities and Regional Water Companies.

REGIONAL LEVEL 1 STRATEGIC FLOOD RISK ASSESSMENT
For: Herefordshire Council (Strategic Planning) - 2009
SFRAs are statutory regional flood risk assessments, integral to the planning system, principally to identify all sources of flooding within a river basin and to direct future development away from these areas. The Consultant was appointed to prepare the long-term Strategic Flood Risk Assessment (SFRA) for Herefordshire, covering much of the River Wye basin, which is one of the most ecologically sensitive river systems in the UK. The SFRA incorporated field surveys and community questionnaires, GIS mapping of the entire river basin, hydrological and hydraulic assessments of flood potential, development of flood report databases, and detailed drainage policy formulation for 47 separate sub-catchments within the SFRA study area. The Consultant acted as Team Leader and Principal Technical Consultant.

FLOOD RISK ASSESSMENT AND DEFENCE STRATEGY FOR ECONOMIC REGENERATION
For: Herefordshire Council (Economic Regeneration) - 2007
Hereford City is regenerating its major industrial areas. These lie on the floodplain, and existing and future businesses are exposed to significant flood risk. Herefordshire Council wished to implement major strategic solutions to the flood-risk problem, requiring the development of a river hydraulic model (ISIS software), 2D- floodplain mapping and planning of major river engineering and storage solutions. The Consultant was engaged directly by the client to develop an appropriate river hydraulic model, supervise field surveys and identify feasible flood risk management solutions.

STRATEGIC FLOOD DEFENCE MASTERPLAN, NEWPORT, WALES
For: Newport District Council and Gwent Consultancy 2002
Newport DC, in response to continuing objections from the Environment Agency that are compromising the urgent regeneration needs of Newport, commissioned a major review and design proposals for an integrated flood defences Masterplan for all of Newport. This entails extensive survey work, structures feasibility design, and comprehensive cost-benefit appraisals of all existing floodable properties, culminating in an economically justifiable integrated flood defence system. Proposals will be taken forward to the National Assemble for Wales for future funding.

FLOOD MITIGATION SCHEME, ELBURTON, PLYMOUTH
For: Prowting Homes (South West) 2002
A major nursery and greenhouse complex suffered flood damage and consequential loss in October 2000. A newly completed housing estate upstream was seen as the main cause. Following an Expert Witness investigation, the consultant was appointed to design a new open channel and storm sewer system capable of solving the local flooding problem.

FLOOD RISK ASSESSMENT, TONE MILLS, WELLINGTON, SOMERSET
For: Courtleigh Securities Ltd. 2001
An extensive Mill complex at Wellington is being considered for new development, and the site is a known flood risk area. A HEC-RAS river model was developed of the River Tone through the site that fully modelled the floodplain and hydraulic structures within the site, including potential overland flow routes through the Mill. Modelling showed close calibration with the 1 in 50 year observed event on the River Tone of October 2000. Job Sheet available - 1056

BLOCKAGE RISK ASSESSMENT, PAXCROFT BROOK, WILTSHIRE
For: Environment Agency South West and Gallagher Homes Ltd 2000
Paxcroft Brook has been the subject of increased summer flows from new development, and the watercourse passes through a confined 200 m long culvert at its downstream end. Concern was raised about blockage risk on this structure, and its safety implications. A statistically based risk evaluation study was carried out using methods evolved by the consultant to identify the probabilistic risks of blockage, the most likely causative factors, and to advise on improved safety design and an improved maintenance programme.

FLOOD RISK ASSESSMENT, AFON LLAN, SWANSEA
For: Redrow Homes 2000
Topographic survey, river hydraulic model and floodplain assessment to identify Q100 levels and floodplain for management of drainage and development issues on the site.

FLOOD RISK ASSESSMENT AND A363 COMPENSATORY WORKS, RIVER BISS, WILTSHIRE
For: Wiltshire County Council & Ringway Parkman 2000
A new strategic link is required to bypass the village of Yarnbrook, near Westbury, which has encountered major traffic congestion problems. The link will require a new junction adjacent to the River Biss, an area known for its historical flooding. The consultant was appointed as a known expert in problematic flood schemes to prepare a very detailed river and scheme hydraulic model using ISIS. The innovative solution recommended river training works and new culverts under the existing A363, which not only allowed the scheme to proceed in a very contentious area, but also reduced the existing level of flooding.

BRIDGE DESIGN AND FLOODPLAIN ASSESSMENT, SEMINGTON BROOK
For: Wiltshire County Council & Ringway Parkman 2000
Wiltshire County Council Highways Division is planning a series of new strategic highway links in the county. The A350 diversion will cross two major watercourses, including the Semington Brook. The crossing will require a major new bridge and associated embankments across the floodplain. Various bridge spans were tested with a HEC-RAS model, and it was concluded that the optimised scheme involved a 66 m span, together with floodplain excavation works. The consultant devised a highly efficient series of excavation zones under the bridge which compensated fully for afflux and floodplain loss whilst minimising cut volumes. Job sheet available - 1046

CATCHMENT HYDROLOGICAL MODEL AND RESERVOIR DESIGN, PENARTH, S.WALES
For: Welsh Development Agency/Kennedy & Donkin 2000
A new housing development will impact on the flood sensitive areas of Cog Moors around Barry. A catchment hydrological model was developed using RIBAMAN, which examined various site discharge management strategies, and was used for detailed design of the site attenuation reservoir, which was specially constructed as an ecological habitat for dragonflies.

FLOOD RISK ASSESSMENT AND BRIDGE MODELLING, AFON TYWI, LLANDEILO, S. WALES
For: Lidl UK GmbH & White Young Green 1999
Lidl Foodstores were proposing a new site adjacent to a watercourse in a suspected floodplain area. A downstream bridge was believed to affect flood levels in the site, as was tailwater levels from the much larger Afon Tywi. A river survey and hydraulic model using HEC-RAS were completed to analyse the river system. Analysis showed that the bridge was a restriction to flows, and the model was subsequently used to design bridge improvements and flood protection and mitigation works for the site

FLOOD RISK ASSESSMENT AND BRIDGE MODELLING, CONYGRE BROOK, BATH, UK
For: Bath & N.E. Somerset District Council 1999
Pennyquick Bridge s.e. of Bath required major strengthening works to comply with EC legislation. The client's proposal was to reinforce the newer upstream box section of the bridge with a new single steel arch. The bridge hydraulics were further complicated by the downstream part of the bridge being a stone twin-arch structure, itself affected by a multiple pipe opening ford. A detailed analysis of the bridge hydraulics was undertaken, based on survey work and HEC-RAS modelling. Solutions were found that offset the resultant afflux, allowing the client to obtain Land Drainage Consent for the works.

FLOOD CONTROL RESERVOIR DESIGN, GALMINGTON STREAM, TAUNTON, UK
For: Tesco Stores Ltd., White Young Green 1999
Following hydraulic studies of the Q100 floodplain at the new proposed store, the consultant was appointed to devise an upstream flood attenuation scheme to provide peak flow control and compensatory storage. The design utilised the principal of 'rising limb attenuation' advocated in the Urban Water paper of 1999. The location of the reservoir (being upstream of the urban areas) required a specialised form of hydraulic control in order to achieve a reduction in downstream peak flows, whereby only the early part of the hydrograph is attenuated, corresponding to the time of the urban runoff peak downstream. This design minimised the storage volume of the reservoir without compromising its effectiveness. Job Sheet available - 1028

RIVER MODELLING AND RIVER REALIGNMENT, LLANGEFNI, ANGLESEY, N. WALES
For: Safeway Stores Ltd., White Young Green 1999
The proposed site required a river diversion and new culvert to Q100 standard of the Afon Clai. A particular problem was the sharp bend needed at the upstream end of the diversion, overcome by environmentally sympathetic design of a stilling pool and cascade arrangement. Full hydraulic modelling using HEC-RAS was required to design the new channel and culvert, and incorporate the backwater effects from the larger Afon Cefni immediately adjacent to the site.

FLOOD RISK ASSESSMENT, RIVER TEME, TENBURY WELLS, UK
For: White Young Green 1999
Historic Tenbury Wells is on the banks of the River Teme, and the existing cattle market will shortly be re-developed as a food retail store. River surveying and modelling of this major river was necessary to establish Q100 flood levels, floor levels and the outline form and elevation of flood walls. Q100 flow was obtained by an analysis of records from the town gauging station. The commission will also ensure that no adverse affects are created at the historic Teme Bridge immediately upstream.

FLOOD RISK ASSESSMENT AND COMPENSATORY WORKS, WATCHET STW, SOMERSET, UK
For: Wessex Water Engineering Services 1999
An upgraded Sewage Treatment Works (STW) is required at Watchet in conformance with new EC directives. Flood design levels were required for the works, and the Environment Agency also required an impact assessment of the effect of works embankments on the existing floodplain. An existing river hydraulic model was modified, expanded and used to assess proposals. Job Sheet available - 1035

FLOOD RISK ASSESSMENT AND RIVER MODELLING, RIVER ALLEN, WIMBORNE, DORSET
For: Ashvilla Estates Ltd Ongoing
Major re-development proposals are being considered for the centre of historic Wimborne in Dorset, UK. Some of the proposals may affect existing flood levels and floodplain storage along the River Allen. The town centre had a flood defence scheme implemented in 1994, and the river is an ecologically valuable and sensitive chalk source river. The commission was to construct a detailed HEC-RAS river model of the whole river system in the town, including the main river, diversionary sluices and culverts, and advise the client and Environment Agency as to the most appropriate methods for accommodating development proposals.

OLD RAILWAY SIDINGS FLOOD RISK ASSESSMENT, ABERDARE, S. WALES
For: Rhondda Cynon County Borough and Parkman Consultancy Ltd. 1998
The disused railways sidings at Aberdare are a key site for redevelopment, but are at serious risk of flooding in a Q100 event. In order to examine development possibilities that would avoid flood-risk to the site and avoid third party detriment, advanced HEC-RAS modelling was required. Existing flood levels and floodplain were established, and various viable river engineering schemes tested, including design of new flood walls, culverts and highway bridges.

RIVER CHANNEL RE-DESIGN, GALMINGTON STREAM, TAUNTON, UK
For: TESCO Stores Plc and White Young Green 1998
A food retail store is currently proposed for a site adjacent to the River Tone and Galmington Stream in Taunton. The existing site is known to be susceptible to 1 in 100 year flooding. An Environment Agency requirement was to show that flood storage could be replaced following development by means of an improved and enlarged river channel. A 2 stage flood channel was designed using the HEC-RAS software, including a new access bridge. The scheme design showed that flood level risk to upstream properties could also be significantly reduced by an improved channel.

FLOODPLAIN MAPPING OF THE MONKS DITCH RIVER, NEWPORT, S.WALES
For: Land Authority of Wales 1998
An extensive area of land east of Newport is designated for residential development, and the proposals are likely to have a major impact on the river system floodplains and catchment hydrology. The commission required the development of a detailed hydrology model of the catchment, capable of assessing urban runoff impact from numerous land parcels, and construction of a state of the art river hydraulic model using the HEC-RAS package to determine the Q100 flood levels. The river model was 3.9 km in length, and included 150 sections. Surveying made use of a 3D terrain model from aerial survey, and digital floodplain maps were completed using the MapInfo GIS package. Job Sheet available - 1038

DESIGN OF RIVER CHANNEL IMPROVEMENT, RIVER STOUR, KIDDERMINSTER
For: White Young Green Consulting Ltd & Tesco Stores Ltd. 1998
The Brinton's wool mill site in the centre of Kidderminster is due for a redevelopment into a major shopping precinct. The River Stour runs through the centre of the site currently in the form of a lined rectangular channel. The consultant provided the hydraulic design and testing of a new, environmentally sensitive channel to the Q100 standard. The design was completed using the ISIS modelling software. The performance of existing side weirs had to be evaluated, and sizing of new culverts was also necessary. Job Sheet available - 1019

A131 SUDBURY BYPASS FLOOD STUDY, RIVER STOUR, SUFFOLK
For: Suffolk Highways Engineering Consultancy 1997
Major crossings of the River Stour and Belchamp Brook near Sudbury, Suffolk are proposed by Suffolk County Council as part of a bypass scheme. Properties upstream are likely to be affected. The consultant was appointed to undertake the development of a major hydraulic model of 3 km of the River Stour. The model showed excellent predictive results in comparison with the 1968 flood for which there was substantial flood data, and the calibrated model was then used to test the hydraulic impact of various proposed bridge configurations and floodplain modifications. Job Sheet available - 1011

ASHTON VALE FLOODPLAIN IMPACT STUDY, BRISTOL
For: Terry Adams Ltd - Parkman UK 1996
Extensions to landfill operations were proposed in the Ashton Vale area of Bristol. The area has a history of flooding, and was the subject of a flood alleviation scheme by Wessex Water in the 1970's. The Environment Agency required a detailed study of the impact on floodplain levels and river flows as a result of extensive potential infilling of the floodplain. Particular account had to be taken of fluvial - tidal joint probabilities. It was established that betterment to third parties could be provided by attenuating flows within landscaped reservoirs on site, which improved significantly the level of service of the original flood scheme, which had not included for tidal influences.

FELTHAM BROOK FLOOD STUDY, BRISTOL
For: Seabank Power Ltd (British Gas) 1996
An Above Ground Installation (AGI) was proposed for development in the floodplain of the watercourse. The study required river channel surveying, and construction of a HEC-RAS river model incorporating scheme proposals along the affected 1 km length of the river to ascertain any increases in flood risk. Various feasibility options were tested to offset anticipated increases in flood level.

PAXCROFT BROOK FLOOD STUDY, WILTSHIRE
For: J.J. Gallagher Ltd 1996
The 95 ha. residential development of Paxcroft Mead near Trowbridge was expected to cause flooding problems in the receiving watercourse. Use of a hydrological model in the study established that attenuation was not feasible. A flood scheme had to be designed and tested to the Q100 standard using the HEC-RAS software to satisfy Environment Agency requirements. Sensitivity analysis was required to determine worst case conditions with respect to the backwater effects of the major river downstream and a known restrictive culvert.
