A practical guide for farmers and farm advisors to provide simple, clear advice and aid decision making on the delivery of natural flood management measures.
Local data and evidence on Natural Flood Management is key to engaging with both the public and local businesses. It is also vital to providing the detail needed to target, deliver and evaluate projects at the local catchment and community level.
Natural Flood Management (NFM) or Working with Natural Processes (WWNP), involves implementing measures that help to protect, restore and emulate the natural functions of catchments, floodplains, rivers and the coast.
The Sustainable Catchment Management Programme (SCaMP) aims to apply an integrated approach to catchment management across all of the 56,385 hectares of land United Utilities own in the North West, which they hold to protect the quality of water entering the reservoirs.
