Alcester Flood Scheme on Display

The Environment Agency is inviting Alcester residents to give their views on a flood scheme for the town.

The town of Alcester lies on the confluence of the River Alne and River Arrow. It has been flooded a number of times over the years.

The Environment Agency is now carrying out investigations in the area to assess the current flood defenses.

According to the EA, ground investigations are due to begin in the summer to determine the condition of the ground around the existing embankments in order to find the best method of working during construction.

A hydraulic model is also being developed.

The public drop in session is to be held on 9 July between 4pm and 7pm at:

Alcester Town Hall
Henley St
Alcester
B49 5QX

Environment Agency project manager, Saffron Dhillon, said: “We would like to share some of our findings with the community and find out from them whether they are in line with their experience in previous flood events. It would be great to see lots of local people at this event, so we can learn from their experiences and share information about the current proposals.”
