Flooding in Somerset

Anyone who has been affected by or has concerns about the recent floods is welcome to attend and share their experiences with Environment Agency officers and advisers from partner organisations including Somerset County Council and Sedgemoor District Council.

The session will specifically cover the Curload area including Stanmoor Bank, Athelney, Knapp, Haymoor End, Moredon and Newbridge.

The event is a chance for residents to discuss the recent floods, recovery, dredging and future flood resilience. It will run from 4.00 – 7.00pm. Further surgeries covering other areas of the Moors and Levels will be held over the coming weeks.

People unable to attend Thursday’s drop-in session can contact the Environment Agency’s Wessex Flood Resilience team for the latest advice by email at or by phone on 01278 484891.

Rachel Burden for the Environment Agency said:

The surgery is an excellent opportunity for residents to share their concerns and discuss flooding issues with the Agency and local partner organisations including Somerset County Council.
