Northumberland Flood Scheme Wrapped Up

The final part of the Environment Agency and Northumberland County Council’s multi-million pound flood scheme in Morpeth is complete.

Work to construct Cotting Burn dam was the last piece of work on the multi-million pound flood scheme.

The dam works alongside other flood protection measures to reduce flood risk to around 1,000 properties in Morpeth.

To reduce the risk of flooding from the River Wansbeck, in-town defenses were completed first, followed by the large upstream storage area at Mitford, which has already operated to protect the community.

This year, tree poles were installed into the river near to Lowford Bridge to prevent large debris from reaching the town center.

The construction of the new dam and storage area, which reduces the risk of flooding from the Cotting Burn, was finished in May and it is now operational.
