Exeter Flood Defence Scheme

Exeter has a long history of flooding, going back as far as the 13th century. The current flood defences were built in the 1960s and 70s after devastating flooding affected more than 1,000 properties.

Although the current flood defences have worked effectively over the past 40 years, studies carried out by the Environment Agency indicate that in a more extreme flood the current scheme would not be able to protect vulnerable parts of the city.
