Water Butts Roll Out Across Eastbourne

The Slow the Flow project is well underway in Eastbourne thanks to a partnership between Blue Heart and Our Rainwater.

With increasing weather events and changes to the climate the need to slow the release of rainwater into drainage systems is essential. The voluntary scheme has seen hundreds of interested households signing up for a slow release water butt to ease pressure on these systems across Eastbourne.

Dr Sarah Bunney (pictured) Co-Founder of Our Rainwater was on hand to see the installation of water butts at several surface water flooding prone areas in Eastbourne.
