Protecting towns from the threat of flooding.

About this event

Louth and Horncastle have a history of flooding. Since the last floods in 2007, partners have come together to fund two schemes. The £6.5M Louth scheme will reduce the risk of flooding to 355 homes and businesses whilst the £8.1M Horncastle Flood Alleviation Scheme will reduce the risk of flooding from the River Bain to 288 homes and businesses.

The schemes were tendered for on the Environment Agency's WEM Design and Build Framework. Construction commenced in July 2015 and will be completed in the new year. The attenuated flow will be controlled by a Hydroslide and is the first use of this device on a fluvial river system in the UK.

The presenters will describe the delivery, design and construction of the flood storage reservoirs.


Paul Arnold and George Fletcher (Environment Agency)

Refreshments served from 6pm.
