The Environment Agency plays a central role in managing flood risk from rivers and the sea. We have the strategic overview role for flood risk management from all causes of flooding, including rivers, the sea, groundwater, reservoirs and surface water. This report explains how we tackle the risk of flooding in England, looking mainly at flooding from rivers and the sea.
