The aim of this report is to suggest a risk management approach for the Markham Willows site and identify how its performance should be evaluated over a ten-year time frame (the risk management model). The approach involves a combination of detailed quantitative risk assessment with localised remedial action to demonstrably break pollutant linkages giving rise to unacceptable risks to human health, controlled waters or the environment. This report is based on an initial desk top site investigation carried out by Derbyshire County Council, and applies the risk assessment and options appraisal mechanisms suggested in the draft Model Procedures (Environment Agency 2003). It uses the following criteria to evaluate risk management options (based on Bardos et al. 2002) within the Model Procedure approach.
