The guidance is primarily for NFM scheme developers who use Leaky Woody Structures (LWS), but it will also inform landowners, commissioning bodies, contractors and consenting bodies about the risks they need to consider when planning the installation of these structures.
Workshops delivered by the CaBA Urban Water Group to help catchment partnerships and planners learn about creating sustainable catchments. Download presentations and workshop summaries here.
A proposed approach to ensure plans meet partners’ needs, are compliant with legal commitments and helps achieve outcomes despite limited resource.
This document provides evaluation tools for catchment partnerships to self-assess their capabilities.
The guide summarises the data that should be collected by all Defra funded Community & Catchment Scale Natural Flood Management (NFM) schemes. The majority of this data will be collected using the ArcGIS Online (AGOL) tool. Additional more complex data will be collected at the end of each project using the Excel templates provided.
Guidance, technical manuals, templates and examples of how to setup and run an Outfall Safari to get local volunteers involved in surveying sources of urban pollution.
Water quality training resources for CaBA partners to show what sort of information can be obtained from different types of water quality monitoring data, and to make available a suite of tools and resources to help access and analyse existing data, and plan future collaborative monitoring strategies.
This page provides a narrative to explain what natural capital is, why it is important for catchment partnerships and guides you through the growing list of resources available to help you incorporate natural capital into the work of the partnership
This guide has been developed to provide simple, clear information on natural flood management measures for landowners and farmers in the North West.
This quick guide will help Environment Agency officers understand potential risks and liabilities to consider when working with natural processes to reduce flood and coastal erosion risk. This is relevant when working on projects involving natural flood management (NFM) interventions to be undertaken by:
– the Environment Agency itself
– contractors or other risk management authorities on our behalf
– others, such as local community groups, landowners and nongovernmental organisations (NGOs) with whom we are working in
The following guidance and case studies have been created by the CaBA Urban Water Group to help catchment partnerships and planners in urban areas create sustainable catchments.
A guidance document on engaging with the Water Framework Directive – a legal framework for the protection and promotion of sustainable water management of surface waters (including coastal waters out to one nautical mile) and groundwater.
