GeoSmart’s Groundwater Reports are the first ever available to demonstrate the risk to a site from groundwater flooding. It provides the most accurate method of screening and assessment at postcode level available.
The FloodSmart GroundWater Plus Report is based on GeoSmart’s 5m Groundwater Flood Risk Map (GW5). It will screen for risk and then our highly experienced hydrologists will investigate the physical and environmental setting, including local geology, groundwater levels and topography. As a further cost option, LIDAR data can be used for more complex sites.
Based on a simple traffic light system, the flood risk report is quick and easy to understand. Detailed guidance and clear recommendations on next steps are provided.
Typically 5-10 working days (10 working days for sites where highly accurate height data is required).
Premium delivery option is available if report is urgent.
