Friday 14 Oct 2016Proofing the Concept of Sustainable Drainage Schemes Using an Integrated Urban Drainage Model

Anthony Raine - Pell Frsichmann

Harrison 170 14:00-15:00



This presentation will provide an overview of the Par Lane Surface Water Management Plan work and 

how this is linked to a wider EU Funded St. Austell Resilient Regeneration Project. It will also 

highlight the complex interactions between various drainage systems and the tide. The current 

options being put forward to resolve flooding problems in the Par Lane area range from a low cost 

mitigation option, a medium cost / risk option or a comprehensive robust 1 in 100 year+ option. A 

robust 1 in 100 year option to resolve extensive flooding in Par Lane up until recently was thought 

to be unachievable, but due to some creative thinking about what can be achieved in the wider 

surrounding catchment area and joined up working between the various partnering organisations such 

options are now looking feasible. How some of the initial concepts for the options being put 

forward were tested using the IUDM model will be discussed and this will hopefully show how 

extensive data collection, detailed modelling and collaborative working can pay dividends. Some of 

the sustainable drainage systems being promoted in the catchment to achieve the objectives of each 

proposed scheme will be presented.
