Flood Risk Assessments for Wind Farms
When undertaking Flood Risk Assessment for Onshore Wind Farms it is necessary to identify if the site is located within a sensitive hydrological setting (e.g. due to presence of surface watercourses). The impact of the development on hydrology, drainage and water quality during the construction phase also needs to be mitigated.
The principal requirement is often the assessment surface water runoff generated by the site, and establishing a management regime for that runoff. Any increases in hardstanding has the potential to result in increased flood is unless suitable mitigation measures are proposed.
