Accreditated by

Two-day training course designed for anyone who requires an understanding of the management of river systems or the impact of developments in a river catchment.


Sustainable catchment management relies on a robust understanding of: rainfall-runoff and hydraulic processes; how variability in catchment characteristics can influence rates and volumes of runoff; the relationship between flow and water level at any location. The development of appropriate catchment management solutions is also dependent on the ability to correctly evaluate the impact of different options.

This introductory course guides participants through the fundamental science and the most up-to-date supporting tools. It demonstrates content and relevance through a series of worked examples.

Course content

Who should attend?

Those involved in river and catchment management including recent graduates, consultants, local authority staff, conservation and fisheries officers, development control and flood defence officers.
