The Water Management Board (WMB) works with partners to develop and implement a strategy for water management - in both flood risk and water resources - that enables, promotes and delivers sustainable growth across Greater Lincolnshire. The aim of the WMB is to deliver the ambitions within the water management plan with stakeholders and partners.

The aim is for Greater Lincolnshire to be seen as a national exemplar for water management in both flood reduction and water supply, and to act as an incentive for investors, and thereby contributing to economic growth.

The WMB identifies sustainable solutions and projects to ensure delivery of strategic outcomes.

The Board is made up of representatives from the Environment Agency; Witham Fourth Internal Drainage Board; Anglian Water; Severn Trent and DEFRA, alongside the LEP and local authority representatives and meets as required. 

The Greater Lincolnshire LEP has adapted to new ways of working in response to the Covid-19 pandemic. More board meetings and discussions are now being carried out remotely, reducing the need for board members and staff to travel around the county.
