Author: National Rivers Authority
Document Type: Monograph
In January 1990, the National Rivers Authority (NRA) Anglian region, commissioned Laurence Gould Consultants Limited (LGC) working in association with Sir William Halcrow and Partners to undertake an assignment to develop a system, which could be applied nationally, for the definition and monitoring of flood defence Levels of Service (LOS). Two stages of work were anticipated with the first, reported in March 1990, reviewing the current regional situation and data availability. The second stage, to develop a system which could be applied nationally, is the subject of this report. This document sets out the consultants’ recommendations of the most appropriate techniques to define and monitor LOS and is intended as a draft report for circulation to members of the Steering group set up to monitor the progress and outcome of the project.
