The Ouse and Humber Drainage Board is an independent public body.
We deliver flood risk, water level and habitat management in Yorkshire and the Humber.
We are an independent, locally accountable public body governed by a board of elected and council appointed members.
We are the Land Drainage Authority for our district and we exercise a general supervision over all drainage matters.
Our operations ensure that 20% of the East Riding of Yorkshire is drained, an area that includes the M62 motorway. Our district is in the Humber Estuary and river flood plains. Our work reduces flood risk to thousands of residents, businesses and agribusinesses.
