Survey teams mobilised on projects in Norwich, Barrowden in Rutland, and Bourton on the Water in Gloucestershire.

In Norwich, a fifty acre brown field site was levelled with two GPS RTK rovers in order to calculate a flood risk assessment for the site.

Storm Geomatics carried out a feasibility study on a mill pond restoration project at Barrowden. The original channel to the Mill pond has been filled in, and has left the pond stagnant. Surveyors worked out a route to take water off the nearby River Welland, and working with hydraulic engineers, provided an outline scheme and costing to bring fresh water back to the pond.

Storm Geomatics were awarded the contract to survey a complex network of drains, watercourses and ditches near Doncaster, South Yorkshire. Up to twenty-five hydraulic models will eventually be constructed and be interactive with each other allowing engineers to have a better understanding of the flooding issues in the area. The job to date has been noted for its blackthorn bushes and its problems with security.
