EA Newsletter

The new Environment Agency newsletter (#2) consolidates a lot of information relevant to local communities in one document. You can view a copy on-line here, or, if you want to receive updates directly, send an email request to the Environment Agency.

The main news affecting Aller is the work being planned on the Sowy, reported here.

Sowy/Kings Sedgemoor Drain (KSD) improvements
We are assessing improvements for the River Sowy and KSD so that in a future flood we could quickly and more easily divert water from the River Parrett through to Dunball. This would lower the levels in the River Parrett sufficiently to enable us to operate the pumping stations to help lower water levels on the moors around Langport, and to a lesser degree around West Sedgemoor, Currymoor and Northmoor.
