Slow The Flow Calderdale was set up to look at the issue of why and how the Calder Valley floods and to look at flood prevention measures and solutions to slow the volume of water which comes down the hillsides into the River Calder. We are a group of dedicated engineers, scientists, landscape experts, and those working in land management.
We are working with Government, The Environment Agency, Calderdale Council, The National Trust, Treesponsibility, The Source Partnership, The Calder & Colne Rivers Trust, Pennine Prospects, Calder Futures and the Flood Wardens along the Calder Valley to seek a solution to this continuing and growing problem.
Our objectives are simple – to slow the flow from the upper catchment in the Valley Valley to the main river channel thereby reducing the flood peak and limiting out of bank flow where it matters, in our towns and villages.
If you can sponsor us, please click the link and donate what you can. We are an incorporated charitable organisation and all money raised will go towards the costs of our projects throughout the upper Calder Valley so we can expand our range of interventions.
