Description: Create Water were appointed to carry out a Flood Risk Assessment for a proposed 1.6 million tonnes sand and gravel quarry near to East Beckham, North Norfolk. The Flood Risk Assessment was required as the site areas its greater than 1 hectare. Therefore in this instance the Flood Risk Assessment focused on the drainage of surface water from the site both during the operational phase and once the site has been decommissioned. The site also lies in an area which is environmentally sensitive in terms of groundwater, therefore it was imperative to ensure the drainage features suggested as part of the Flood Risk Assessment did not increase the risk of pollution to the groundwater below the site.

A range of workable and cost effective solutions for the drainage of the site were developed in conjunction with the client and Environment Agency to ensure the flood risk posed to and by the site were minimised whilst taking into account the sensitive groundwater environment in the area of the site.
