Middle Level Commissioners

We have been proudly managing water levels in the Fens since 1862 and have gained a reputation as a leader in the sector for successfully balancing and managing flood risk, water levels, navigation and nature conservation across the Middle Level, building from the legacy left by the engineers and adventurers involved in the Great Drainage from the 1600s.

The MLC system consists of an arterial network of 200km of channels and banks, spanning two counties. It is where some of our most threatened habitats and species find refuge and thrive, in an otherwise intensively cultivated and developed landscape. The MLC also provide environmental and consultancy services to 36 other Internal Drainage Boards (IDBs) within the same local area, so we are uniquely placed to positively influence opportunities for nature across a significant area of the fenland landscape.
