The main project report is split into four sections. It starts by describing the characteristics of the catchment and the challenges facing the area. It then sets out the group’s vision and objectives needed to ‘Reimagine the Levels’ and it concludes with a set of 11 recommendations for consideration by public bodies and local communities.

SRA End of Year report
SRA Report


This Report tells you what the Somerset Rivers Authority did in 2016-17 with its funding from local partners.  The SRA is a partnership between 11 of Somerset’s existing flood risk management authorities: Somerset County Council, the five district councils, the Axe Brue and Parrett Internal Drainage Boards, the Environment Agency, Natural England and the Wessex Regional Flood & Coastal Committee. The SRA’s purpose is to provide a higher standard of flood risk management than is affordable from the existing budgets of those flood risk management authorities. 
 
The pie chart (p3) shows where the money has been spent and reveals that the vast majority has gone on dredging and other works to address flooding where it occurs while a small amount has been spent higher up the catchment to reduce run off.
