|TW||TW Stanford Dingley strategy|
Determine location of ingress to sewer network in Stanford Dingley.
|23/01/2018||In progress||Depth logger data has been reviewed but not conclusive for points of ingresss. TW have confirmed they will now be trying smoke testing.|
24/01/2017 work to line a sewer to be completed by 02/2017. However there remain problems in SD that require regular tanker visits and thus TW are carrying out further investigations via manhole lifting. 2 of 4 loggers are still working.
23/05/2017 TW to carry out an IAS survey when we have a wet winter. New Flygt pumps to be implement this summer in SD station.
26/09/2017 Flygt pumps installed July 2017 (and a 2nd in Nov 2017) but damage done to 'ducks foot' base during installation. Repair due to start 26th Oct and due to take two days. All manhole covers on Jennetts Hill have been replaced and the impermeable survey has been completed showing no misconnections in the Frilsham area, which further narrows the area of search. The data logger is still to be moved around but there is a wider programme of depth monitoring in the Thames Valley area so we are looking to move these but also see if we can install some flow monitors/data loggers that feed directly into our modelling software. We have also completed flow monitoring on the rising main in June which gave us information on the pump rate through the rising main.
23/01/2018 Ducks foot (bases for the pumps) have been replaced and thus second Flygy pump installed. Still trying to narrow where the ingress is happening. Data loggers are still to be moved. Track to sewer pumping station needs attention.
|Smoke test completed. As a result 4 pieces of work have now been raised by TW (3 in Frilsham and 1 in Stanford D) and now done.|
18/5/2017 Meeting held in SD with BC, MH, KL and Andrew Hagger TW, Denise Kinsella TW and James Hoar TW.Maps of sewage pipework discussed and it was agreed that two flow monitors near Frilsham that were key to locating point of ingress were not working properly and possibly needed replacing. One data logger on Jennetts Hill to be moved up to Frilsham area to triangulate location of ingress. Some manholes still needing to be replaced on Jennetts Hill. An impermeable area survey was due to be done in Frilsham in approx 2-3 weeks time. It was noted that it may still take some time to locate point of ingress and it may not be possible to do so until next winter and return of wetter weather. TW were keen to get to bottom of problem as SD was one of only two areas that had confounded them.
|PVFF||01/10/2015||Devise a village-centric account of causes, consequences and escalating risk levels. Mapping stage 2||12/01/2016||On hold||This activity should be phase 2 of the Pang Valley flood risk mapping exercise|

DK and TS will update us on progress at the next meeting. 23/01/2018 With regards to the update / holding reports, these have been delayed, the aim is now to have them published in February 2018 Apologies for the delay.,|
|WBC||S Clark||01/03/2016||WBC Hampstead Norreys scheme.|
Investigate a permanent overflow channel around Hampstead Norreys as provided during the flooding.
|23/01/2018||In progress||1. Overflow swale in field|
2. Blockage on bridge on B4009(underground channel to water meadow) – this wasn’t part of the WBC bid and there is a restriction below the B4009
3. Sewage ingress was missed. WBC resubmitted a project mandate for the works - pending a response.
23/05/2017 Preliminary Design and Business Case 2017/18, Detailed design 2018/19, construction 2019/20

|WBC||S Clark||01/03/2016||WBC Stanford Dingley bypass scheme.|
Bid submitted to Defra (RFCC Grant Funding) for permanent bypass channel around Stanford Dingley.
|23/01/2018||In progress||Bid submitted through EA, awaiting confirmation of RFCC programme. Funding awarded for the investigation and feasibility in the 2015/16 financial year. UPDATE - The estimated cost of the study is higher than the grant allocation. Application for additional grant money submitted to the EA. It is Surface Water flooding. WBC have found money to conduct the study, design and create the PAR (aka the business case). PAR work has started with consultant working on this.|
20/09/2016: when the consultants have a design and a model, SC to share with Stanford Dingley (Mark) by end of 03/2017
23/05/2017 PAR would allow 75 year protection. Business case stacks up.
26/09/2017 Detailed design in progress.
23/01/2018 WBC agents (Dalcour Maclaren) have visited the village. Next steps should involve a topographical survey. Indicated that diggers might arrive this year (2018).
|.The scheme has been allocated 215k this year in the current EA Medium term programme. SC will begin the detailed design June 2017 . The current cost estimate for design and construction is 450k which includes the cost of lowering existing utilities underneath road. SC will need to discuss whether further funds will be available to take the scheme forward but the business case still stacks up. 26/09/2017 Detailed design in progress|
|66||12/01/2016||Compton||TW||01/01/2017||TW Compton strategy.|
TW to create a whole drainage strategy for Compton
|23/01/2018||In progress||Compton Drainage Strategy Stage 1 on TW website|
20/09/2016: TW will implement flow monitors in Compton to see if there is infiltration. Also planning to do CCTV work. Depth monitors in place, also in Hampstead Norreys.
24/01/2017 Update is the same for 20/09/2016 - current low water levels prevent data gathering. TW to share trigger level for groundwater level when leaks might start into the sewer system. Installing rising main monitors East Ilsley pumping station and HN pumping station (budget is committed).
23/05/2017 CCTV surveys scheduled, but need more groundwater for the work to succeed.
26/09/2017 CCTV surveys scheduled, but need more groundwater for the work to succeed. TW will create a holding document update for WI, EI, Co, HN assessments.
23/01/2018 3 Flow Monitors were installed in Compton from the 24/03/2017 to the 08/05/2017 (that have now been removed), during a fairly dry period, as such no signs of infiltration were seen / expected. This is now available as a good baseline for when the higher ground water levels return. With regards to the update / holding reports, these have been delayed, the aim is now to have them published in February 2018. TW to send link when reports are published to PVFF.
|The next step will be a combined Stage 2 and 3. DK and TS will update on progress at the next PVFF meeting.|
|PVFF||PA||PVFF website - emergency details.|

|EA||MW||Pangbourne and Tidmarsh flood modelling.|
EA to share results of the CH2M modelling for the Pang and Sulham Brook in the Pangbourne and Tidmarsh areas.
|23/01/2018||In progress||Meeting to be arranged with Pangbourne project team re modelling CH2M|
26/09/2017 Meeting held on 7th July in Pangbourne with site visit including Moor Copse and Tidmarsh. Notes from meeting are on website. Further photos and information subsequesntly sent to CH2M to assist with their modelling. Update awaited. Phase 1 modelling by Ch2m has been updated with new information provided by PVFF people - this now matches what happened in 2007 and 2014. This means that EA will fund further modelling.
Option then to be considered:
1. Home Farm bypass
2. Flood Storage area
3. Raise banks along the Pang
Review meeting to be arranged after stage 2 modelling is complete.
23/01/2018 Rashmi Krishnan is new Project manager for this. CH2M have successfully managed to create a flood model that represents what happened in 2007. This took longer than expected. A non-technical reason for this delay is because they couldn’t adjust one of the gauging stations to reflect what happened in 2007. I think this was the Tidmarsh gauge. This has now been resolved. The next step is to update the hydrology to show the changes that have happened since 2007. These are the things such as the flood wall, channel maintenance and the other improvements that were shared with us at the site meeting back in the Summer. The consultants are going to inform us how they plan to do this in January. We can then identify if anything has been missed.
23/01/2018 EA to invite PVFF Pangbourne and Tidmarsh reps to review the model and options for a scheme.

|WBC||Pangbourne mill clearing.||23/01/2018||In progress||The build up of slit downstream of the mill has been removed. A budget estimate to clear and remove silt immediately upstream of the mill would be about £5k, plus another £4k to replace the trash screen.|
23/05/2017 It may be that further work is not needed. Initial clearing may have helped. Pangbourne PC to observe.
