Title: Review of flood defence practices on the Somerset Levels and Moors : the report
Author: Environment Agency South West Region
Document Type: Monograph
A commitment to review flood defence practices is a key part of the Environment Agencys Somerset Levels and Moors Water Level Management Strategy. This is the first report to be produced as part of that review. It is in three parts: i) A scoping document presenting information on current practices; ii) Supporting Appendices; iii) Maps and Figures. This first report sets out the present flood defence practices as understood by the Environment Agency. Comments are invited on the information provided. Once a common information baseline is agreed the review will then proceed to its next stage. This will involve consideration of any changes to flood defence practices and the drawing up of future programmes of work. Suggestions on these aspects of the review are welcome too. To ensure momentum can be maintained and to allow consideration by the Agencys Flood Defence Committee, it would be helpful for initial responses to be made by 31 October 1999. To aid the consultation process and to help ensure an understanding of the complex issues involved the Agency is happy to respond to requests for further information and to accept invitations to address meetings.
