Internal Drainage Board / ADA Insurance

Internal Drainage Board and Association of Drainage Authority Insurance

An Internal Drainage Board’s (IDBs) primary role is to manage water levels and reduce the risk from flooding within their districts.

Much of their work involves the maintenance and improvement of watercourses (not main rivers) and related infrastructure such as pumping stations, weirs, sluices, culverts and embankments within their drainage districts.

Covering 1.2 million hectares of England (9.7% of the total land area) and 28,500 hectares of Wales (1.4% of the total land area), IDBs have a significant operational role within Agriculture, Renewable energy, water level management and the environment.

The Association of Drainage Authorities (ADA) is the national representative of IDBs in England and Wales and require that insurance for their IDB operations, covers all associated risks.
