Hundreds of places across Somerset have benefited from extra flood protection and resilience works funded by the Somerset Rivers Authority Annual (SRA).
In 2020-21, the SRA spent £3.344 million on actions designed to protect people, properties, businesses and roads, while enhancing local environments, in accordance with the objectives of Somerset’s 20 Year Flood Action Plan.
Everyone in Somerset is affected directly or indirectly by issues with flooding, so the SRA invests in a wide range of actions countywide to reduce flood risks and increase local resilience when floods do occur.
There are two versions of the Annual Report. A longer version gives lots of details about SRA activities and is helpful for exploring what has been done at a very local level, right down to single fields and ponds and ditches. It includes around 80 photographs plus other illustrations.
The shorter version is much more selective, but still very informative and visual.
