Thames Water LM (Hughenden Valley) Drainage Strategy Document

The following mail has been received from Thames Water which confirms the publication of the TW Drainage Report for Hughenden Valley. This is an important document regarding dealing with Hughenden Valley’s future flood risks; it results from much work carried out by Thames Water with considerable input from HVDIG.

The strategy document is available to download on the Documents page.

Dear Mr White

Further to my email dated 18 December 2015, I would like to update you, with the latest developments of the Little Marlow (Hughenden Valley) Drainage Strategy.

As you know, we’ve now published on our website www.thameswater.co.uk our Stage 1 Drainage Report. Since that time Gareth Evans has presented you with our revised version following the HVDIG consultation, and I believe you were pleased with the updates, and happy with the final version.

Following the HVDIG meeting in March 2016, Gareth has carried out site visits with you and other members of the HVDIG. This has proven very useful in helping us to focus on the planned surveys going forward. You may be aware, that information from the sewer flooding questionnaires is crucial and allows us to capture information about the extent, nature and frequency of flooding in the area. This continues to help us understand the flooding mechanisms, and prioritise investment in the future alongside other equally important areas across our region.

I confirm, other surveys are planned in the area and we are also going through historic data to obtain the best information.

We will regularly consult with customers, and stakeholders, to update and republish our catchment drainage strategies as they develop throughout the 4-stage framework process

I’ll continue to update you on a 6 monthly basis, and will contact you again on 19 December 2016, with our progress. In the meantime, if I can be of any further assistance, please do not hesitate to contact me on 0800 009 3666 from 9:30am – 2:30pm, Monday to Friday.

We’d love to hear about your experience, please click here to tell us what we are doing well or what we can do better.

Yours sincerely

Sarah Sanders
