How do I prevent my home from flooding?

High rainfall, especially over a short period of time, can cause flooding. Here are a few simple checks which you can do to prevent flooding in your home, especially if you live in an area that is susceptible to flooding:

- Check your gutters. If you have a blocked gutter or downpipe, report it to us so we can arrange come out and clear the issue.
- Check your drains and gullies to see if they are blocked or covered with leaves or dirt. If you live near trees or have lots of vegetation in your garden, keep on checking your drain covers and clear leaves and dirt that may get there.
- If you notice that the road drain is blocked or starting to get blocked, report this to the local council. This is their responsibility to clear and the earlier this is picked up the less likely it is that flooding will happen.
