NFM at Pembury Woods

Natural flood management at Pembury Woods to reduce flood risk downstream and offer additional benefits.

A large series of Leaky Woody Structures (LWS) installed along the Alder Stream in Pembury Woods/Tudeley Woods to 'slow the flow' reduce flood risk downstream. The LWS also increase the diversity of the habitat along the stream and aim to increase water retention in the wet woodland habitat.
