The Ouse and Humber Drainage Board is the Land Drainage Authority in the Howdenshire area of the East Riding of Yorkshire. Our work benefits a larger catchment area including the Market Weighton and North Cave areas. The Board maintains around 260 miles of watercourse and main river on an annual basis, works that are largely funded by domestic, business and agricultural ratepayers.
The Board has decided to adopt a definitive maintenance plan. This is will inform future maintenance and resource needs. This is the first time a draft definitive plan has been published by the Board and its predecessor authorities.
