WORK to prevent a repeat of floods which swept the Holme Valley in 2002 is urgently needed, say Tories.
They said little had been done, despite repeated calls for action.
Millions of pounds of damage was caused to roads and buildings in Holmfirth, Jackson Bridge, Hepworth and New Mill two years ago.
The area's three Tory councillors - Nigel Patrick, Donald Firth and Ken Sims - said culverts and roadside ditches remained blocked with silt.
They added that no interest had been shown in carrying out preventive maintenance.
A Government minister had not even bothered to reply to a letter, the councillors said.
Clr Sims said: "We met the Environment Agency and Kirklees officers to discuss a way forward.
"It was agreed that a full survey should be carried out of the watercourses in the valley, to identify the problem areas.
"The cost of remedial works would be calculated and a programme of works scheduled, with the most urgent first.
"But the officers have not done a thing - despite constant reminders."
A council spokesman said the three biggest problems caused by the flooding of 2002 - in Lingwood Close, New Mill, and in Barnside and Far Lane, both in Hepworth - had been dealt with.
But a decision on whether to proceed with a full watercourse study of all the Holme Valley had still to be taken, because of the cost, combined with an estimate of the bill for all the remedial work.
Lib Dem councillor Clr David Payne, Kirklees Cabinet member responsible for the environment, said the flooding of 2002 had been exceptional.
"Officers work hard to maintain our drainage system within available resources," he added.
