Preliminary Flood Risk Assessments and Flood Risk Areas in the Solway Tweed River Basin District.
The Solway Tweed River Basin District is home to around 450,000 people and covers an area of around 17,500 km² and incorporates much of the Scottish Borders, Dumfries and Galloway and the Eden and Esk valleys. As well as supporting a wide range of internationally important habitats and wildlife, the district also supports a range of economic activities, including tourism, agriculture, forestry and manufacturing.
The main river catchments in the district include the Rivers Tweed, Eden, Esk, Annan and Nith, Dee-Ken and Cree and their associated wetlands. Most of the Solway Tweed River Basin District falls within Scotland; however, the English catchments of the Eden, Waver and Wampool drain to the Solway Firth and the River Till is part of the River Tweed catchment.
Due to our method of assigning Lead local flood authorities (LLFAs) to the river basin district which they are mostly within, we have not assigned any LLFAs to the Solway Tweed river basin district.
More information on the Solway Tweed River Basin District can be found on SEPA's website.
