Nearly 70 people attended a local event on Thursday, 19 February 2015, at Saffron Walden Town Hall to find out about work being undertaken by the Environment Agency and the risks of flooding in Saffron Walden.
Liz Taylor, Flood Risk Advisor for the Environment Agency, said: “We were really pleased that so many people came along to find out more about the work taking place. It was a great opportunity to talk to residents about how to prepare for floods and provide information about the flood warning service in Saffron Walden.”
The event was also hosted by representatives from Uttlesford District Council and Essex County Council.
Staff were on hand to answer questions about flood risk, the current works and to explain the rights and responsibilities of riparian landowners – people who own land next to, or over, a watercourse.
