Environment Agency wins recognition for Cumbrian flood work

Environment Agency (EA) flood defence work has scooped the community award in the ICE North West Engineering Awards.

The EA won the award for the Gote, Cockermouth Flood Alleviation Scheme in Cumbria. Judges praised the organisation for delivering the crucial work to a demanding timescale while working closely with the local community – such as the Cockermouth Flood Action Group (CFAG).

“The win is testament to the successful joint-working of our teams to empower local people to have greater control over flood defences in their area,” said EA north west director Toby Willison.

Another EA project – the Didsbury Flood Basin scheme – came in second place in the same category and received a commendation.
