The Future Climate Info (FCI) Flood Seminar gets under way today and Maxine Zaidman, our Technical Director for Hydrology and Hydrometry, is speaking on Groundwater Flooding – The Hidden Peril.
Maxine will look at the frequently underestimated risk of groundwater flooding; what it is, the mechanism as to why it occurs and why so many properties were flooded as a result of this often hidden flood risk during the winter of 2013/14, when groundwater levels reached record highs.
Our new Specialist Food Risk Service, which we have worked with FCI to develop, will also be launched at the Flood Seminar by Geoff Offen.
With 1 in 6 homes in England and Wales estimated to be at risk of flooding, there’s no surprise that flooding is a hot topic for most! The event also hosts an additional two industry speakers alongside Maxine, and will allow property solicitors to gain a better understanding of the risks associated with flooding in order to continue to protect clients.
