Farmers across Somerset made well over 100 bids in the county’s biggest auction yet for works to help stop flooding. The auction ran online in the second half of March. Somerset Rivers Authority, the Environment Agency and the Farming & Wildlife Advisory Group SouthWest offered farmers a choice of up to seven different methods of natural flood management. Bids are now being checked.
Three drop-in sessions about River Sowy and King's Sedgemoor Drain enhancements are being held on the 17th, 18th and 19th of February. The events at Westonzoyland, Othery and Aller will give you chance to learn and ask questions about major SRA works to reduce flood risks coming up in the second half of 2020.
