Detail

This document explains how the Environment Agency is working with partners in Somerset on a 20 year flood action plan for the long-term sustainable future of the Somerset Levels and Moors. The action plan, owned by Somerset’s councils, internal drainage boards and local leaders, was drawn up following the widespread flooding of early 2014. A project to dredge 8 kilometres of the Rivers Parrett and Tone is part of the action plan and was completed on 29 October 2014.
