Future Flood Risk Management in Cumbria   (14.6.17)
This information has been sent on behalf of The Environment Agency
PP and Community Engagement, Cumbria.
Following the devastating damage to homes, businesses, and key infrastructure caused by Storm Desmond in December 2015, we have developed an extensive list of options on how we could better manage flood risk in the future.

We would like to take this opportunity to share with you the range of possible options we have identified for each community and catchment area. The river catchments that we are working with are the Eden, the Derwent and West Cumbria, and the Kent and Leven. The options as well as work that has been delivered and programmed to be delivered by the Environment Agency is shown on a google map and can be accessed by clicking on the following link http://bit.ly/2r031CP

The attached document titled Future Flood Risk Management in Cumbria provides a general overview and ‘how to guide’ in accessing and navigating around the online Google map. It is important that you read this to ensure you understand what information the google map is displaying.

We are also hosting a number of community drop-in events across the County. These events are an opportunity for you to discuss future flood risk management with us and also receive advice on personal and community resilience and information on our operational responses to flooding.
