East Devon work in partnership with the other risk management authorities to manage the risk of flooding in the area in line with local and national flood risk management strategies. As the Land Drainage Authority, East Devon have powers to do works on ordinary watercourses as well as powers to implement and maintain flood defences on ordinary watercourses.

The Local Flood Risk Management Strategy for Devon (which includes East Devon) is now available.
