Research Project

Flow modelling for deculverting urban rivers

This project seeks to explore the issues surrounding "daylighting" of underground urban rivers. Flow modelling will be used to investigate the potential to benefit a number of areas:

  • Flood risk management
  • Ecology and river habitats
  • Sewage systems and wastewater treatment
  • Urban regeneration

This builds on and continues work from the URSULA research group.
