Dredging is being considered as a short-term measure to reduce the risk of flooding in Cockermouth.
Six months ago the town's defences were overtopped during the floods of Storm Desmond.
Last night, 150 people packed into Christ Church in the town for a public meeting to discuss a Flood Investigation Report put together by the Environment Agency and Cumbria County Council.
We are reviewing the levels where we trigger that action so that may result in us carrying out more dredging than we have done but at this point it's too early to tell.
What I can can say for sure is that before the end of the month we'll be in the river removing the build up of excess gravel that is there currently.
The steepness of the terrain around Glenridding plays a big part in explaining how, and why, the village flooded so severely six months ago.
In December people woke up to the worst flooding the town had seen for more than 50 years, and many are angry at the council's response.
Colin Bell had spent 40 years working on his three classic cars, but they were all badly damaged by December's floods.
