2023/24 Broke Records for Pumping at St Germans

St Germans is the largest land drainage pumping station in the UK, working in combination with over 70 smaller stations, hundreds of km of drains and raised embankments, to keep our Fens relatively dry and protect local communities and the economy from flooding. We are hoping for a drier 2024/25 but need to plan for this being the new normal.

Our system operates in conjunction with over 20 smaller Internal Drainage Boards. We are each small, locally funded public authorities, governed by volunteers who also operate the majority of the smaller IDB pumps.
