The Somerset Rivers Authority (SRA) was officially launched on January 31, 2015 as a response to the floods of winter 2013/14 which devastated the people and communities of Somerset.
Establishing the SRA is a key Action of the Somerset Levels and Moors Flood Action Plan, which was developed at the Government’s request, and signed off by the Secretary of State in March 2014.
“We must establish a Somerset rivers board that has greater control and responsibility for work to maintain and improve water management…” the Plan stated.
Now the SRA’s remit includes the whole of Somerset, not just the flooded areas of the Levels and Moors.
