Supporting communities to be more resilient to groundwater flooding

What is Project Groundwater?

Project Groundwater supports communities to be more resilient to groundwater flooding.

The six-year programme is working with communities in 9 high-risk flood areas of the Chiltern Hills and Berkshire Downs. It is led by Buckinghamshire Council in partnership with five other local authorities and Flood Community Groups.

This project is funded by Defra as part of the £200 million Flood and Coastal Innovation Programmes which is managed by the Environment Agency. The programmes will drive innovation in flood and coastal resilience and adaptation to a changing climate.

What does it aim to achieve?

The programme aims to increase engagement with communities in order to help build understanding and awareness of groundwater flooding and to keep them fully informed about programme activities. We will support communities to be better prepared by:

  • improving monitoring of when and where groundwater emerges
  • improving awareness of groundwater flooding
  • developing a better flood alert system for groundwater flooding
