Rapid Response Catchments

About the project

The Rapid Response Catchments (RRC) project forms part of the Devon Resilience Innovation Project (DRIP). This Environment Agency funded project aims to build community resilience to flooding, by using Natural Flood Management (NFM) methods

We are working with eight communities across Devon to co-create Natural Flood Management plans, by listening to, and working with, members of each community.  This includes landowners, residents, business owners, Council members and anyone who has an interest in these communities.
