Lindsey Marsh Drainage Board

Water Level Management

Flood Protection

Sustaining the Environment


Drainage boards have been in existence since the 1930's, continually protecting land, property and life against flooding from the sea and rivers. Drainage boards are independent bodies accountable to the local community for the flood protection service they provide.

Lindsey Marsh Drainage Board is the largest drainage board in England, maintaining 938km of arterial watercourse and 30 pumping stations. As well as ensuring that water levels are maintained at an appropriate and safe level, the Board also has a duty to conserve and enhance the natural environment.

The present Board was formed in November 2000 by the amalgamation of the Alford Drainage Board, Louth Drainage Board and Skegness District Internal Drainage Board.

There is currently a vacancy on the Board for the Burgh Sluice/Thorpe Culvert/Wainfleet/Croft electoral district.

If you wish to be considered for the position, please contact Carol at the Manby office 01507 328095 for further details.

All applications will be considered by the Board at its next meeting on 29th March 2017 when an appointment will be made.
