Somerset Rivers Authority (SRA) has published its annual report for 2020-21.
The report covers the SRA’s achievements over the past 12 months and also outlines progress on some bigger themes and projects since the devastating Somerset floods of 2013-14.
Hundreds of places across Somerset have benefitted from extra flood protection and resilience works funded by the SRA.
In Highbridge, the SRA used Growth Deal funding from the Heart of the South West Local Enterprise Partnership to part-fund the new pumping station built by Wessex Water to help stop sewer flooding in Field Way.
In total, in 2020-21, the SRA spent £3.344 million on actions designed to protect people, properties, businesses and roads, while enhancing local environments, all in line with the aims of Somerset’s 20 Year Flood Action Plan.
