Flood Alleviation Scheme

On 26 December 2015 Storm Eva caused significant and widespread flooding across Leeds and some of the highest river levels were recorded. The devastation that was left behind meant that homes and businesses were inhabitable and a huge clean up process needed to take place.

Groundwork are pleased to be involved in an exciting pilot scheme to encourage local people to help with the management and maintenance of the river. By working in partnership with the River Stewardship Company and Open Source Arts we are delivering the Leeds City Council and Environment Agency’s project to help protect areas from future devastation.
