River Thames Scheme

The River Thames between Egham and Teddington is on the largest area of undefended, developed floodplain in England.

In the past, the area has suffered serious floods. With climate change, the risk of flooding is only going to grow.

Runnymede Borough Council is working in partnership with the Environment Agency and other local authorities to deliver the River Thames Scheme - a flood alleviation and management scheme in the area affected by flooding from the Thames.
