Alcester residents encouraged to have say on flood prevention

Stratford Editorial 7th Jul, 2019   0

RESIDENTS in Alcester are being urged to have their say on a flood scheme for the town.

Alcester lies at the meeting of the Alne and the Arrow and has been flooded a number of times.

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

Ground investigations are due to begin shortly 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.

A drop in session is being held on Tuesday (July 9) at Alcester Town Hall from 4pm to 7pm.

Environment Agency project manager Saffron Dhillon said: “We would like to share some of our findings with the community and find out from you whether this is in line with your experience in previous flood events.

“It would be great to see lots of local people at this event, so we can learn from your experiences and share information about the current proposals.”
