Mott MacDonald help develop a flood management system in China

Mott MacDonald, its Danish partner DHI Water & Environment and China’s Institute of Water Resources and Hydropower, have been awarded a three-year contract by the Project Management Organization of the Songliao Water Resources Commission to develop a flood management system for the Songhua River, funded under a loan obtained from the Asian Development Bank(ADB). The project will be carried out in close partnership with the client.

The Songhua River basin covers an area in excess of 556,800 km2 and serves a population of 53.5million. The region experienced severe flooding in 1998, when 88 counties and some 17.3 million persons were affected. The £200 million project funded by ADB and the Government of China aims to improve flood defences and the management of floods such as the 1998 event.

Mott MacDonald will be involved in the provision of :
- A comprehensive flood information management system based on GIS
- An advanced flood forecasting system
- A hydrodynamic model for flood simulation
- A flood management decision support system based on the above components.

The ultimate aim of the project is to help develop the necessary expertise in the Songliao Water Resources Commission to actively and effectively manage floods. Mott MacDonald will also be providing advisory and training services as well as transferring skills and technology.

The project is scheduled to be completed in 2007.
