Living with Water are out and about this summer talking about natural solutions that help mitigate surface water flood risk.

Hull and the East Riding of Yorkshire has the second highest flood risk outside London with around 100,000 homes at risk of flooding.

The aspiration of the Living with Water partnership is to work together with the public sector, private sector and communities to co-design and develop water sensitive urban regeneration which manages flood risk and enhances the environment and improves the well-being of the region.

We are actively engaging all over Hull and Haltemprice this summer, so whether you have a community group, meet in a pub or have an event coming up and would like us to talk to your communities about flood risk and the work we are doing, email us at

Alternatively come and see us at the following events, where we have plenty of exciting activities to have a go at.

Play the snakes and ladders flood game or make it rain on our flood houses, there’s plenty to do this summer with the Living with Water team.
