An updated version of the Environment Agency's guide to How the Somerset Moors work. It shows in detail how water is moved around the Moors when the River Parrett and the River Tone flood. Rivers, Moors, spillways, sluice gates and pumping stations interact in complex ways.
See how part of an old silted-up channel has been dug out to allow huge amounts of floodwater to be stored in a field, as it used to be, off the River Isle near Donyatt.
See rock rolls installed on the River Isle to prevent erosion and stop soil from the riverbank causing problems downstream. The video's presented by Joanna Uglow of FWAG SW.
Ten acres of new woodland are created in the catchment of the River Isle, on Lord Cameron’s estate at Dillington near Ilminster.
