Get involved in CIRIA projects and proposals Application of EC7 to flood embankments in the UK (RP1000) This guide will update UK practitioners on the interpretation and application of EC7 in the context of flood embankment design, construction and management that also supports the application of the principles and guidance in the International Levee Handbook. The guide would address a clearly identified gap in current UK practice in relation to the current Eurocode 7. Update of the SuDS manual (RP992) The aim of this project is to update CIRIA's SuDS Manual (C697) to reflect changes in good practice and regulations. Exceedance of urban drainage systems – supporting uptake (RP991) This project will investigate new approaches, assess uptake, showcase and disseminate good practice helping to develop a compelling business case and provide recommendations on how delivery can be further improved and encouraged. Groundwater control - design and practice update (RP990) The report was first published in 2000. The report will be updated to include a hydrogeological assessment as part of the Environmental Impact Assessment now and further updates as required. Demonstrating the multiple benefits of SuDS – a business case (Phase 2) (RP993) This project will support SuDS delivery, particularly retrofitting by developing and collating an evidence base, case studies, guidance and agreed methodology to better understand costs and value the broad range of benefits providing a more compelling business case. Dam and Reservoir conduits (tunnels, culverts and pipes) – inspection, monitoring, investigation, maintenance and repair (RP982) The project will produce a succinct consolidated guidance report on the inspection, monitoring, investigation, maintenance and repair of conduits at reservoirs that complements existing recent related guidance but addresses reservoir specific issues. Old Waterfront Walls (RP987) This project will update CIRIA's existing guide: Old Waterfront Walls - management maintenance and rehabilitation but excluding reinforced concrete and sheet piling. Guidance on management of unexploded ordnance in off-shore situations (RP998) This project will develop good practice guidance on the assessment and management of UXO in offshore and near shore environments. Update to the Coastal and marine environmental site guide and pocket book (P2853) Since the publication of CIRIA’s Coastal and marine environmental site guide (C584) in 2003 and associated pocket handbook Coastal and marine environmental pocket book (C594) there is now a need to update the content in light of recent and forthcoming changes in legislation.
