Soft management techniques
Soft management techniques:
- Washlands- These are parts of the floodplain that are allowed to flood.
- Land use zoning- This is where land has different building controls depending on how far away from the river it is.
- Afforestation- This is replacing trees in the catchment.
- Warning systems- Warnings are issued by the environment agency so that local people can put sandbags by their homes.
