Environment Agency’s New CEO to Visit Somerset

Sir James Bevan, the new chief executive of the Environment Agency, is visiting Somerset this week where he will see firsthand the improvements made in the area since 2013/14. 

He will start his tour in Bridgwater where he will meet local Environment Agency staff.

Sir James will then be taken to Burrow Mump, where he will witness the extent of the Somerset floods and the improvements made so far.

These include the dredging of an 8 km stretch of the Rivers Parrett and Tone (£6 million) followed by a £2 million upgrade of pumping stations and platforms.

Sir James has set himself the task of visiting all 16 of the Environment Agency’s areas in his first 100 days of office.
