Internal Drainage Boards.

The Association of Drainage Authorities (ADA) represents Internal Drainage Boards nationally. Their website contains lots of useful information about IDBs.

Over the past couple of years or so, the University of Hull has been working on an Arts & Humanities Research Council (AHRC) grant-funded research project about Internal Drainage Boards. ADA has supported and been involved in the project as part of an Advisory Team.

Part of that work has involved the preparation of a documentary film about the work of IDBs which has now been completed and offered to ADA and all IDBs to use as they see fit. ADA sees this film as an excellent resource for IDBs to help inform their ratepayers about the important work they do.

Staff here at the Middle Level Commissioners not only administer and provide a range of services for the Commissioners, we also administer the local IDBs that feature on this page. Please note that we do not administer all the IDBs that are located within the Middle Level of the Fens. Please also see the websites below:

Ramsey IDB        Feldale IDB          Whittlesey & District IDB               Woodwalton IDB              Holmewood District IDB

In addition, there are also a small number of private drainage districts within the Middle Level.
