Counters Creek Flood
Between 1971 and 2007, the Counters Creek area in London lost around 20 percent of its permeable green space. This, along with the loss of all open watercourses in the locality, has led to a rise in surface water run-off, which increases the risk of local flooding. As part of the London Greenstreets program a sustainable urban drainage installation was constructed at Arundel Gardens in the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea to reduce sewer overflow into open water and minimise the risk of urban flooding.
