ACTIVATE Banbury Flood Alleviation Scheme Be READY TO LEARN Think like a Geographer The scheme was completed in 2012. A 2. 9 km earth embankment was built parallel to the M 40 to provide a flood storage area. The embankment has a max height of 4. 5 m, it is capable of holding 1200 Olympic size swimming pools (3 million cubic metres of water). The flood storage area collects rainwater that would have swelled the river and caused it to burst its banks.

ACTIVATE Banbury Flood Alleviation Scheme Be READY TO LEARN Think like a Geographer Two flow control structures were built in the embankment. The specially designed aperture (opening) controls the rate of flow downstream towards Banbury. Any excess water backs up behind the structure, filling up the reservoir rather than continuing towards Banbury. The design avoids the need to open and close flood gates.
