A meeting in Hawick have been explaining the progress of the town's flood defences.
Hawick suffered serious flooding in 2005 when the River Teviot overflowed prompting Scottish Borders Council to find a solution to the problem.
Flood-risk consultants who have been studying ways of stopping flooding in Hawick say major work won't start for at least three years.
Options will be considered over the next few months on where the flood defences will be.
A scheme could cost between £15 million and £90 million pounds.
The Scottish Government has promised to pay for 80% of it.
People in Hawick are being invited to see the flood scheme for themselves at a display at The Heart Of Hawick building.
