Retrofitting to manage surface water management. London, 24 April 2012

Retrofitting surface water management can provide exciting opportunities to manage local flood risk, diffuse water pollution and can deliver urban design and amenity benefits. To encourage the uptake of retrofit solutions, CIRIA recently published Retrofitting to manage surface water (C713) guidance. This guide deliberately challenges many of the current conventions applied to managing surface water runoff and puts urban design at the heart of future solutions. The new guide deals with the engineering aspects of retrofitting surface water management measures, covers the organisational and governance aspects of drainage and looks at the need for adequate funding. The guidance also focuses on appraisal approaches, how different agencies can work better together, public expectations and why delivering multiple benefits are important. Three launch events were held in Bristol, London and Leeds, and delegates gained an overview of the work completed and how this has drawn on experiences from both the UK and overseas. Presentations from the London event are available on video while interviews with a number of industry experts can be seen here.
