In February 2002, the Environment Agency commenced a study to identify sustainable methods to\ud reduce the flood risk in Oxford. Over 3,600 properties are within the floodplain of the Rivers Thames\ud and Cherwell with a 1% (1 in 100) annual flood exceedance probability. During the early stages of the\ud study, it was recognised that out-of-bank flows from the rivers was the most significant factor but that\ud groundwater flooding could not be ignored. This paper addresses the output of a collaborative project\ud that was set up between the Environment Agency and the British Geological Survey to address the\ud groundwater issues and their impact on flooding
