Future dredging of Parrett

The Environment Agency is conducting a modelling exercise to investigate the effects and potential cost of further dredging along the Parrett. This is part of the 20-year plan, and will be reported on (and hopefully actioned if funding is available) in the autumn. 10 locations across the Levels and Moors are identified, including most of the Parrett downstream of Thorney and the Yeo below Huish Episcopi pumping station.
The briefing note from EA is available here.
