Salmons Brook Flood Risk Scheme Near Completion

The Environment Agency is nearing completion of a £15.3 million flood alleviation scheme to reduce the risk of flooding from Salmons Brook in north London.

The scheme will be formally opened soon by Amanda Nobbs, Chair of the Thames Regional Flood and Coastal Committee.

Parts of Edmonton and Enfield have historically had a high risk of flooding from the Salmons Brook and Saddlers Mill Stream. This multi-site scheme will lower the flood risk of 1,393 properties (2,587 homes, as some of the properties are flats).

The Environment Agency received planning permission from the London Borough of Enfield Council to build the scheme in November 2012, and construction began in May 2013.

A combination of central government grant-in-aid and a contribution from the Thames Regional Flood and Coastal Committee levy funded construction of scheme.

Some of the features of the scheme include new flood defense wall, new brick-clad flood wall, new headwall, new culvert, etc.
