Welcome to our website. We're a group of 6 Internal Drainage Boards (IDBs) operating in the Anglian Region of the United Kingdom, known as the Water Management Alliance or WMA for short. WMA members include Broads IDB, East Suffolk IDB, King's Lynn IDB, Norfolk Rivers IDB, South Holland IDB and Waveney, Lower Yare and Lothingland IDB.

Our members are autonomous and democratically accountable statutory bodies that seek to protect some 548,000 hectares of East Anglia. We have over 500 years of experience protecting and defending our wonderful parts of England. For more information about what we do, please navigate our website and review our statement of capabilities.

We also work in association with the Pevensey and Cuckmere Water Level Management Board and the Bedford Group of Drainage Boards.
