Green Reservoirs

 The concept of ‘green’ flood storage featured in both technical presentations at the POST Seminar  (House of Commons 17th January 2012).

 It would seem to be a key message to the Select Committee.  Green solutions are also a theme of CIWEM 2012 (20Mar12).  Natural Flood Management (NFM) by ‘green’ porous reservoirs demands multiple intermittent engineered features at strategic locations to achieve significant cumulative effect without lateral impact

Select Committee chair Anne McIntosh (MP Thirsk/Malton) seemed  a  tad uncertain of the science of NFM.  Yet natural processes do deliver (more . . .).  For sure, uncertainty is a problem, but so is hesitation for vulnerable communities.
