Thameside surface water management plan

The Thameside study area comprises the borough's or Dartford and Gravesham. This region of the county was identified as an area where a surface water management plan would be beneficial in improving our understanding of local flood risk issues. Dartford and Gravesend, in the north, are the main urban centres within the study area, while the landscape to the south is largely rural.


The study identified a number of generic and location specific actions to manage the risk of local flooding. The actions ranged from the implementation of maintenance regimes to awareness raising of the risks in the area.
