Glasdrum Quarry, Oban, Flood Risk Assessment


Glasdrum Quarry, Oban

Client: A&L McRae

Services: Flood Risk Assessment and Flood Modelling

Arcus was commissioned to undertake a Flood Risk Assessment for opening of a sand quarry adjacent to the banks of the River Creran, Oban.

Arcus undertook consultation with Argyll and Bute Council and SEPA to confirm the requirements for flood modelling.  A 2D flood model of the River Creran was developed in Flood Modeller software which demonstrated that the proposed development would offer flood storage capacity during the 1:200 year flood event and would not cause offsite flooding.

SEPA reviewed the model and had no objection to the development.
