Proud to Welcome Black Drain and Danvm IDBs

Today (April 1st 2020) we welcome Black Drain Drainage Board and Danvm Drainage Commissioners to Yorkshire and Humber Drainage Boards.

Yorkshire and Humber Drainage Boards (YHDB) is a management group led by Ouse and Humber Drainage Board to provide management and technical services for 8 Internal Drainage Boards in the region, managing IDBs from Scarborough to Stainforth, over a vast area of our county, managing water levels in some of ‘the most at flood risk areas’ in the region and the country.

YHDB is managed by a public authority, for public authorities by public authority staff. No profit is made, and by working together savings can be better directed into delivering our services.
