Recently completed Otley Flood Alleviation Scheme Wins Civil Engineering Award

Days after passing its first test at the hands of Storms Dudley, Eunice and Franklin, there was more good news for the Otley Flood Alleviation Scheme (Otley FAS). Recently, the scheme won the prestigious Smeaton award at the Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE) Yorkshire and Humber awards ceremony in Leeds. The awards celebrate the achievements of civil engineering in the Yorkshire and Humber region, with the Smeaton award being the top prize for projects with a budget under £5million. The judges praised the environmentally friendly approach to flood alleviation, how the scheme enhances biodiversity through the daylighting of Kell Beck, and praised the scheme for completing the works successfully so close to Otley Bridge, a scheduled ancient monument.
