A milestone has been reached with the River Sowy-King's Sedgemoor Drain (KSD) Enhancements Scheme, which is being delivered for Somerset Rivers Authority by the Environment Agency. The Environmental Statement for this scheme's first phase is out now for consultation until 13 September.
A public consultation is being run until Saturday 3 August on proposals to dredge the River Parrett between Stathe and Burrowbridge. Dredging would increase the river's capacity to carry flood water, and so help the SRA to protect people and properties. Some environmental improvements are also planned.
