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.

Help Us Stop The Block


Every day, Welsh Water clears sewer blockages caused by people flushing things they shouldn’t. 

The truth is that you're risking a blocked pipe every time you flush a wipe, cotton bud or sanitary product. Fat, oil, grease and food waste can also cause disaster.

But by doing what's right, you can stop the block.

 

It’s easy to prevent blocked pipes

It’s important you only flush or drain away natural human waste (pee and poo), toilet paper and wastewater from baths/showers, sinks, washing machines, and dishwashers – it’s the right thing to do.
