Flood Risk Management

Sweco is responding to the impacts of climate change affecting the natural and urban environment with innovative solutions.

Our flooding and network modelling team covers a wide range of diverse projects. We have significant expertise in the areas of sewerage, river, surface and ground water modelling and management and have developed strategies and action plans for our clients as they look for more innovative, integrated long term solutions to the challenges of flooding, drainage and water management.

We have the experience to meet these challenges, calling on our wider expertise from across Europe. Sweco has consistently delivered innovative projects, to meet increasing demands for more cost effective water services, from pioneering integrated network management in Europe under the EU SPRINT programme in the 1990s, to recently advising Irish Water on the procurement of a leakage management system. We work with our clients to deliver reliable and sustainable water supplies, utilising comprehensive asset data, metering, hydraulic modelling and telemetry.
