Highbridge flood alleviation works

I am writing as Chair of Somerset Rivers Authority (SRA) to let you know that the SRA’s Annual Report for 2019-20 has just been published. It showcases some of the SRA’s many achievements over the past 12 months and is a good, interesting read.

I have attached two copies of the Annual Report. The longer version gives lots of detail about SRA activities and is helpful for exploring what has been done at a very local level, right down to single fields and ponds and ditches. It includes around 130 photographs plus other illustrations. The shorter version is much more selective, but still very informative and visual.

You can also read the entire text, split up into accessible sections, on the SRA’s website. Start at https://www.somersetriversauthority.org.uk/flood-risk-work/sra-annual-report-2019-20/

Dozens of places across Somerset have benefitted from extra flood protection and resilience works funded by the SRA. In 2019-20, nearly £2.8million was spent on actions designed to protect people, properties, businesses and roads, while also enhancing local environments.

Everybody in Somerset is affected directly or indirectly by issues with flooding, so the SRA invests in a wide range of actions countywide to reduce flood risks and increase local resilience when floods do occur. All works are additional to those carried out by other Flood Risk Management Authorities in Somerset.

I hope very much that you will enjoy reading the SRA Annual Report 2019-20, whichever version you choose.

If you have any comments or questions, or would like to know more, please contact Somerset Rivers Authority on sra@somerset.gov.uk or call 01823-355111.
