Environment Agency

The Environment Agency (EA) is a non-departmental public body, established in 1996. The Environment Agency helps to protect and improve the environment to make it a better place for people and wildlife in England. This includes reducing the impacts of flooding, promoting sustainable development and delivering UK environmental policies. The Environment Agency has a strategic overview role for all flood and coastal erosion risk management in England and is the principal flood risk management operating authority for main rivers and the sea. You can use the Environment Agency’s online information to check if you’re at risk from flooding, view the current flood warnings and get advice on how to prepare for flooding.
