The Jubilee River story -  Chris Birks - EA Thames region director - August 2004

 
 

Chris Birks, the Environment Agency’s Thames region director, said: “The fact is that in January 2003 a thousand homes in the Maidenhead area that would have flooded otherwise stayed dry.

“We know the Jubilee River works, there is no question about it. Nonetheless, the Atkins reviews do raise important concerns that the Environment Agency is addressing with urgency.”
