EA contracts Boutling Group to provide maintenance services

Boutling Group, an engineering solutions provider, is extending its relationship with the Environment Agency (EA) by delivering maintenance and engineering services across additional sites in the north west.

The EA operates a network of flood-defence assets across the UK. These are used to prevent flooding by protecting high-risk areas and channelling large volumes of water back to the sea when flooding occurs.

To ensure continuing reliability of these assets, the EA undertakes an extensive maintenance programme with the help of various subcontractors. It will now undertake maintenance that includes working at sites north from Kendal to the Scottish borders.
