Environment Agency

The Environment Agency (EA) is the Environmental Regulatory body for England. They work to create better places for people and wildlife, and support sustainable development. The organisation realises this by working with partners using  policy, regulation, technical assessment and advice. The East Anglian team of the EA is involved in seeking solutions to the water resource challenges in Suffolk coastal area and is leading an abstraction reform pilot for the UK government in East Suffolk. 

The Environment Agency is responsible in England for managing ground and surface water quality and resources, both maintaining and improving using monitoring and analysis information. This expertise will feed into technical and non-technical workprogrammes which cover the monitoring plan for testing and evaluating the technologies; developing a roadmap for implementing non-technical solutions; and providing technical support on two demonstration sites (storage and re-use of lowland drainage water and managed aquifer recharge in Felixstowe, Suffolk).
