Description

Northamptonshire County Council wishes to appoint a suitably qualified consultant to develop a Groundwater Flood Risk Study for Northamptonshire.

Following the introduction of the Flood and Water Management Act (2010), the responsibilities for managing the flood risk from groundwater have transferred from the Environment Agency to the Lead Local Flood Authority (LLFA), which in Northamptonshire is the County Council. However, groundwater flood risk is less well understood in general at a local level than surface water and fluvial flood risk. Therefore there is a need to improve the understanding of the risk of groundwater flooding in the county.

The purpose of the study is to provide:
• Identification of the areas of the County at highest risk of groundwater flooding and spring emergence;
• An indication of the types of rainfall patterns and antecedent conditions that may result in groundwater flooding in the highest risk areas of the County, plus information on warning systems for groundwater;
• Information relating to appropriate methods for mitigating groundwater flooding, including resistance and resilience measures;
• Evidence for the Local Planning Authorities in Northamptonshire to use in assessing planning applications for flood risk implications.
