PROJECT 1 |

RIVER KENT CATCHMENT FLUVIAL AUDIT

LOCATION: River Kent Catchment, Cumbria

CLIENT: Environment Agency

The December 2015 flood events caused significant

geomorphological change in Cumbrian river

catchments. We were commissioned by the

Environment Agency to document and map key

geomorphological changes within the River Kent

catchment in Cumbria.

WHAT WE DID

• Full fluvial audit of the River Kent and its tributaries

• Mapping of key sediment sources, such as river

bank erosion, eroding valley side bluffs and land slips

• An assessment of the future risk of increased

flooding as a result of increased sediment

delivery within urban areas.

BENEFITS TO THE CLIENT

• Experienced Geomorphologists

• Increased post fieldwork efficiency with our

GISmapp field data collection tool

• Produced maps to improve understanding of

catchment processes.
