The Jubilee River story - Presentation to Ciwem Conference (Sept 2005)

THE RISE AND FALL OF THE JUBILEE RIVER

FOREWORD by the Author

I wrote and then presented this paper at the Third CIWEM National Conference in September 2005, because 110m of your money and mine has been spent on a sub-standard flood alleviation scheme for which nobody has been held accountable.

The paper refers in detail to three significant elements of the Jubilee River fiasco i.e. exaggerated hydraulic performance claims, cost reduction after tender placement and (lack of) dredging.

At the time of writing, the Jubilee River is unable to carry its design capacity, and is undergoing still more repairs.
