New defences to protect Morpeth from future flooding are expected to be completed by Christmas.
But the scheme, which is jointly funded by the council and environment agency, is expected to go over budget by around £5m.
The project involves building flood walls in areas of the town affected by flooding and also creating the huge dam which will hold back up 1.4m cubic metres of water - the equivalent of 500 Olympic-sized swimming pools.
It means the town will have the capacity to deal with the sort of water levels experienced in 2008.
The total cost of the flood defences is around £25m.
