Flood mitigation measures delivered at the London 2012 Olympic Park have reduced flood risk to more than 4000 residential and commercial properties, improving the quality of life for thousands of east London residents. Additional benefits include water quality, habitat creation, biodiversity, recreation, leisure and education. This was achieved by adopting a collaborative approach across a team that included contractors, planners and key stakeholders. The result is a true and lasting legacy for London and a model for sustainable flood risk management. © 2014, Thomas Telford Services Ltd. All rights reserved.

Pipelines 2011: A Sound Conduit for Sharing Solutions - Proceedings of the Pipelines 2011 Conference | Year: 2011
Permitting for linear utility projects can be a key driver of schedule, alignment and usually cost. Early and proper management of permit identification and acquisition is a key element of a successful risk management strategy for any project. Permitting for linear pipeline projects presents unique and complicated challenges. This paper will discuss the challenges of permitting, strategies for managing permit acquisition, and perspectives on common permitting issues. Linear pipelines present a unique permitting challenge because they typically extend through multiple jurisdictions and, often, through resources with multiple local, state, and federal permitting agencies. Creating a permit acquisition strategy early in the planning phase can avoid delays in later stages of the project. Four key elements of environmental permitting that a pipeline project manager should understand are discussed in this paper. These are permit triggers, timing, cost and sequence. © 2011 ASCE.
