Coln Park, Gloucestershire
Corylus provides advice to Coln Park LLP for effective management of the various freshwater lakes across its vast 850-acre site. This is aided by a network of gauge boards that have been established in most of the lakes within the site. In the winter months when river and lake levels are high, the site faces particular challenges over flood risk, since some of the facilities for regulating the lakes are not yet complete. Our expert Hydrologists have been able to continually guide Coln Park with remedial measures – especially during the extremely wet periods faced in recent years.
Our team designed the scheme to be autonomous, saving future costs for the client ensuring they were able to deal with flood risk in a passive way, with no active management required.
