On Monday 9th of February we went to Pickering for a trip, to see the Pickering flood defences and how they cope with the floods.
The Environment Agency has a project that is called “Slow the Flow”. They have built a very large reservoir which can hold millions of liures of water and slow the river down. They are putting things in like natural dams that are called mini bunds in the woods. They are good for the envioroment and animals near by.
