The Sheaf Flood Alleviation Scheme covers a catchment area of 71km square located within the South West of Sheffield.

The catchment has a history of flooding with tragic loss of life in the 2007 floods.

The scheme aims to reduce the risk of flooding from the River Sheaf and its main tributaries including the Porter Brook whilst delivering wider regeneration, environmental and social benefits.
