Attenuation is the process of storing water on a site and slowly releasing it in a controlled way, either into the ground, to a surface water drain or a watercourse. This reduces how fast rainfall runs off a site, thereby reducing flood risk.
The Education section will be opened on an external site (the Northamptonshire Flood Toolkit), in a separate tab/window. The Flood Aware Schools Pack was created by Northamptonshire County Council, but is applicable to any school and teacher across the country. As such, please do utilise these tools.
