Answered By: 
The Mayor

There are no specific actions in the RFRA relating to these rivers.  The implementation of London Plan Policy 5.13 Sustainable Drainage, will, over time gradually make London's rainwater management more sustainable.

The Drain London project has identified 17 critical drainage areas within LB Hillingdon and 15 within LB Harrow.  To date LB Hillingdon have worked on one of these critical drainage areas via Drain London and have examined the surface water risk at 9 important transport nodes.  LB Harrow has an experienced drainage team, although the main risk areas tend to affect the east of the Borough draining to the River Brent system.
