Reservoir Indundation Mapping

Our experience in applying appropriate, strategic scale reservoir 1D and 2D hydrological and flood modelling techniques is demonstrated through the following projects for the Environment Agency;

  • The modelling and mapping specification for the National Reservoir Inundation Mapping (RIM) project for all statutory reservoirs in England and Wales (2008-2009).
  • The Phase 1 National RIM – simplified Dam Breach hydrographs for all statutory reservoirs in England and Wales (2009–2010).
  • The Phase 2 National RIM – project for 147 reservoirs out of the 846 identified as being at high risk (2009-2010).
  • Preparation of NRIM outputs for 227 reservoirs in England in the Reservoir Risk Review Project (2015).
  • Preparation of a ‘Lessons Learned’ workshop and report on the 2015 Reservoir Risk Review Project (2015).
  • Produce New Specification for Reservoir Flood Maps (2016).
