Since the 2007 floods a close working relationship was developed between Hull City Council, East Riding of Yorkshire Council, the Environment Agency and Yorkshire Water and formalised into the Living With Water Partnership last year.

Now we have a brand-new website - www.livingwithwater.co.uk - to keep you engaged and up to date with all our projects.

Our website is all about providing residents with opportunity and information to get involved and understand how they can help themselves and be part of a more inclusive solution to resilience.

This new website launched on World Water Day aims to follow the UN’s theme for this year which is ‘Leaving no one behind’ engaging all residents in Hull to become involved with their own protection by doing small things to help in big ways.

The partnership reached out to global experts to inform our future strategy and became successful in its bid to be part of the City Water Resilience Framework (CWRF) project, along with Miami, Mexico, Amman and Cape Town exploring ways in which water resilience underpins the way we live day to day.

Lee Pitcher, general manager for Living with Water said: “Huge steps have been taken in various engineering solutions across the region, but now is our time to engage the region to make a change.

“This website highlights how everyone can get involved with our projects to make a change.

“We will bring your news on the various schemes across the area, events you can get involved with and ways in which you can protect your homes and businesses against flooding.”

We have created a website that informs, engages and explains the projects we are working on to raise awareness, working at grass root levels and challenging innovative solutions to make a difference in our unique part of the world.

Water has no boundaries and so our website follows suit. We aim to ensure everyone is aware of who we are and how, by working together, we can help people Live with Water and not fear it.
