Title: Land drainage and sea defence byelaws
Author: Environment Agency Anglian Region
Document Type: Monograph
The Anglian Water Authority Land Drainage and Sea Defence Byelaws are the Land Drainage and Sea Defence Byelaws in force in the Anglian region of the Environment Agency. They were made by the Anglian Water Authority under Section 34 of the Land Drainage Act 1976 for securing the efficient working of the drainage system in their area. Since the 1 st September 1989 they were enforced by the National Rivers Authority and are currently enforceable by the Environment Agency by virtue of the provisions of the Water Resources Act 1991. Accordingly all references in these Byelaws to "the Authority" should be construed as references to the Environment Agency (Anglian Region) whose principal Regional Office is at Kingfisher House. This booklet contains sections on the main river, sea and tidal defences, supplementary provisions and schedule.
