  • Automation scheme holds back the tide to improve flood protection

    The River Ritec flows towards Tenby, where it discharges via a 780 metre culvert/outfall system that passes beneath a railway embankment and sand dunes to discharge into the sea below typical low tide level. There is a history of flooding upstream of the culvert which imposes a restriction on the discharge of flows from the river catchment area during high river flow events. This is particularly ...
