Overview:  Denver is located just south west of Downham Market, and is probably the largest sluice complex anywhere in the country. Right from the 1600s, when the original sluice was constructed, the key purpose has been to protect the people of the Fens, their property and low-lying land from flooding. Today, with the current system of sluices and structures the Environment Agency continues to focus its efforts at Denver on flood protection through the management of a number of converging major drainage systems and tidal waters as well as such variables as rainfall, river flows, wind speed/direction and tidal variations so you can see why it’s called the Denver Complex

Speaker: Daniel Pollard (Superintendent at Denver Complex)

Dan Pollard has lived and worked at the Denver Complex for the Environment Agency for nearly 15 years. He comes from a managerial and customer relations background, so when not fighting flood waters or dealing with drought, he uses his time to promote and explain the expansive work that the EA does at Denver and the country as a whole.
