Note: the version of the Annual Report spread across pages on this website is very closely based on the 32-page version but does not reproduce it exactly. For example, some graphics are missing because they do not work so well on screen. Cross-references to page numbers have also been taken out and replaced with links.
Some sections have more photographs, information and links than the PDF versions of the report. A small number of pages currently have fewer photographs, partly because more can be seen through links to other pages on this website.
Workstream 1 (W1): Dredging and River Management
Workstream 2 (W2): Land management including Natural Flood Management
See also: placed under W5 but with strong connections to this workstream and others
Workstream 3 (W3): Urban Water Management
Workstream 4 (W4): Resilient Infrastructure
A note for serious seekers of drainage knowledge: the Enhanced maintenance page includes links to pages providing lists of all 844 places which had extra SRA-funded gully-emptying in 2022-23. The Enhanced maintenance page also lists the 132 places which benefitted from extra SRA-funded drain jetting. This additional information about gully-emptying and drain jetting is not provided in PDFs of the Annual Report, because it would take up too much space.
Workstream 5 (W5): Building local resilience
(Note: The section about Adapting the Levels includes details about moor associations, a climate adaptation toolkit and two video animations, about Somerset’s Peat and Floodplain Connections.)
