Title: Greatham Creek tidal defences inter regional review : prepared for the purposes of legal proceedings
Author: National Rivers Authority North West Region
Document Type: Monograph
The purpose of the review is to comment on aspects of the implementation of the Greatham Creek Tidal Defence Scheme in accordance with the Brief included as Appendix A. Greatham Creek is an embanked tidal tributary of the River Tees with a history of flooding. The site is divided into 4 cells named in accordance with the quadrants of the compass. Although heavily industrialised, damage in the event of flooding is concentrated on the Tioxide plant in the North East Cell. The southern cells are used as brinefields (located underground) where damage would be confined to control and communication equipment.
