Date added: 12/07/2016
Adaptation Scotland helped Scottish Water to consider future climate impacts in its capital maintenance programme, resulting in changes to maintenance strategies for important assets on the River Spey.
As climate change alters rainfall patterns and brings more heavy downpours, flood risk is likely to increase in the future. This case study looks at how Scottish Water has addressed the impacts of flooding on the River Spey through incorporating adaptation projects in their five year capital maintenance programme.
