New Channel Management Handbook Presented

A new handbook promoting good practice for channel management has been developed by a team of experts, led by Royal HaskoningDHV.

Written for the Environment Agency, the handbook brings together over 10 years’ worth of research and practice. It aims to help with the decisions of when and how to carry out channel management for flood risk and land drainage purposes.

Royal HaskoningDHV led a consortium of consultants and academics to develop the guide, including Colin Thorne (University of Nottingham), Karen Fisher (KRFisher Consultancy Ltd), Nigel Holmes (Alconbury Environmental Consultants), and Paul Sayers (Sayers and Partners LLP).

The Channel Management Handbook is one of a large number of successful national and international-scale research and development publications that we have been involved in,” said Fola Ogunyoye, Technical Director and Leading Professional for Flood Resilience, Royal HaskoningDHV.

One of the key pieces of research was on the impact of maintenance and capital works on river sediments and habitats. Royal HaskoningDHV formed part of the consortium that carried out this research.
