Flood asset inspection involves regularly assessing and evaluating flood and coastal erosion assets. It is essential to ensure the assets remain functional, resilient, and capable of mitigating flood risks. Timely inspections help identify maintenance or repair needs.
Flood asset management services help organisations maintain accurate asset registers, plan for maintenance and repairs, and ensure compliance with regulatory requirements. It enhances asset resilience and public safety.
A flood asset register is a comprehensive database of flood and coastal erosion assets. It documents asset details, condition assessments, and maintenance recommendations. It is crucial for informed decision-making, budget planning, and regulatory compliance. It is also a legal requirement for LLFAs to have an up-to-date and maintained, publicly available asset register.
A PSRA is a thorough evaluation of flood and coastal risk management assets and infrastructure to ensure they do not pose significant risks to the public or compromise public access and rights of way. It identifies potential hazards and recommends remedial actions.
The frequency of flood asset inspection and assessment may vary depending on regulatory requirements, asset types, and risk factors. Typically, regular inspections, ranging from annual to more frequent intervals, are recommended.
Qualified professionals, often certified by relevant bodies such as CIWEM, conduct flood asset inspections and PSRAs. They possess the expertise to assess asset conditions and recommend maintenance or repairs.
An up-to-date flood asset register provides organisations with a clear overview of asset conditions, maintenance needs, and budget requirements. It supports effective asset management, regulatory compliance, and informed decision-making.
Erosion Protection often forms only part of the journey our clients take with us.
