Langholm Flood Protection Scheme

A Strategic Flood Risk Appraisal was carried out by Dumfries and Galloway Council in 2007 which highlighted Langholm as one of the top five settlements in the region in terms of the numbers of properties at risk of flooding. Subsequently SEPA published their National Flood Risk Assessment in December 2011 identifying Langholm a Potentially Vulnerable Area (PVA).
