the Lindsey Marsh Drainage Board
website. From this site you can learn what a drainage board does, where
it operates and the constraints it works within.
boards have been in existence since the 1930's,
continually protecting land, property and life against flooding from
the sea and rivers. Drainage boards are independent bodies accountable
to the local community for the flood protection service they provide.
Marsh Drainage Board is the largest
drainage board in England, maintaining 973km of arterial watercourse
and 30 pumping stations. As well as ensuring that water levels are
maintained at an appropriate and safe level, the Board also has a duty
to conserve and enhance the natural environment. Please see the Board's
mission and policy statements for further information.
Board was formed in November 2000 by
the amalgamation of the Alford Drainage Board, Louth Drainage Board and
Skegness District Internal Drainage Board.
