Somerset Rivers Authority


The Somerset Rivers Authority (SRA) was launched on January 31, 2015 to play a key role in flood protection for the county.

It was one of the Actions of the Somerset Levels and Moors Flood Action Plan, set up at the Government’s request to reduce the severity, duration and frequency of flooding like that experienced in 2013/14.

The SRA’s purpose is to deliver higher standards of flood protection than would be funded nationally, and to create better flood protection and resilience against further flooding by joint planning and delivery (where possible).
