River Foss flood barrier and pumping station
River Foss flood barrier and pumping station
Following the disastrous floods of 2015 the barrier and pumping station are having a 17 million makeover. In 2015 the failure of the pumping station resulted in the decision to raise the barrier and allow the Ouse to backfill the Foss with flooding in areas that hadn't flooded in a generation.
