Built by BGS in GSI3D V3 and Gocad and subsequently converted to 3D pdf, this model covers about 0.23 km2 of the floodplain and valley side of the catchment of the Eddleston Water, west of the A703, north of Peebles in the Southern Uplands of Scotland.
BGS and the Environment Agency (EA) have worked together to produce these revised estimates of the number of properties that are in areas with a groundwater flood hazard, with the aim of providing better estimates in a similar way to those prepared for flooding from rivers, the sea and surface water.
We have had some problems lately that have been due to teething issues with our new server. Hopefully these are now resolved. We appreciate your patience and apologise for the inconvenience. The web team.
Sustainable drainage systems (SuDS) are drainage solutions that provide an alternative to the direct channelling of surface water through networks of pipes and sewers to nearby watercourses. The aims of SuDS are to reduce surface water flooding, improve water quality and enhance the amenity and biodiversity value of the environment. The observatory at Red Kite House has been established to identify how these SuDS schemes impact on groundwater.
