The Board has adopted the key watercourses within its drainage districts and carries out maintenance activities to them. The Board recognises that within its drainage districts they have to make a balance between land drainage and biodiversity. Ensuring the Boards maintenance activities aid in flood risk management while promoting and encouraging biodiversity.
The Board undertakes a number of routine maintenance operations periodically. Principle operations include:
- Weed cutting
- Tree coppicing
- Mowing and control of bankside vegetation
- Blockage removal
- Culvert/land drain jetting and cleansing
