Naturally designed 'leaky dams' prevent flooding
A natural "leaky dams" flood management scheme, which was only installed in Tudeley Woods near Tunbridge Wells, Southern England in January this year, has functioned effectively during extreme weather conditions in Kent caused by Storms Ciara and Dennis which swept across the UK in February, according to the South East Rivers Trust (SERT). In partnership with local landowner The Hadlow Estate, the scheme has been introduced to protect properties in Five Oak Green, downstream of the Alder Stream catchment, from future flooding.
