Monday, 17th February

With flooding still affecting many communities in Wales and Herefordshire, we are experiencing high volumes of calls due to the high winds and heavy rain and our crews are extremely busy.

Here are the organisations you may need to contact:

Natural Resources Wales - 0800 80 70 60 (24 Hours) - if the flooding is coming from a watercourse (such as a stream) that is about to or has burst its banks.

Your Local Council – if you suspect the flooding is resulting from rising groundwater or surface water run off.

Welsh Water Sewerage Services & Emergencies - 0800 085 3968 (24 hours) or report an issue via a webform – for flooding inside your property caused by a blocked or overloaded sewer.

Environment Biodiversity Fund

Biodiversity Fund

Biodiversity Banner

Protecting and enhancing the environment around us is one of the most important responsibilities Welsh Water has.

And as a not-for-profit company, we see ourselves as more than just a water and sewerage company – we want to be at the heart of the communities we serve.

To improve the service we offer our customers further, we have launched an ambitious new Biodiversity Fund to give financial support to projects benefiting nature and enhancing biodiversity at or near our sites.

The fund is designed to help third-sector groups develop and then implement ideas on how to help nature on our sites and the wider community.

Llandegfedd Bluebells

The company is launching the project to help facilitate community based activities aiming to enhance biodiversity, and improve the local environment for our customers.

The new fund is open to any not-for-profit organisations in the areas Welsh Water serves in Wales, Herefordshire and Cheshire, and supports Welsh Water’s statutory biodiversity and conservation duties.
