Pulbough Operation Watershed

Over £3million has been distributed by West Sussex County Council to West Sussex communities to tackle flooding, funding over 360 flood mitigation projects, as part of Operation Watershed Active Communities Fund.

One example locally was the Pulborough parish: Watch this short video from Pulborough Parish Council explaining how they worked in partnership with Horsham District Council Community Wardens and Operation Watershed to help significantly reduce flooding in a well-used community area.

Operation Watershed now has a further £500,000 via the Active Communities Fund to support community groups interested in delivering capital projects to reduce the risk and impacts of flooding in their area.
