Somerset Rivers Authority (SRA) was launched in January 2015 as a response to the floods of winter 2013-14, which caused misery and devastation to Somerset’s people and communities.

The SRA’s purpose is to give Somerset an extra level of flood protection and resilience, as set out in Somerset’s 20 Year Flood Action Plan.

The SRA is a partnership. Only in Somerset do partners work so closely together to tackle flooding problems.

This website shows what is being achieved by Somerset Rivers Authority, and how.
