Pumps brought in to remove floodwater from Somerset Levels

Help

Work has begun to take millions of gallons of floodwater off the Somerset Levels using special pumps brought in from other parts of the country by the Environment Agency.

The pumps, installed at Curry Moor, will run 24 hours a day transferring water into the nearby river, but it will still be weeks before the land is returned to normal.
