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.
Preparing your business for Winter
Businesses, schools and buildings like community centres or places of worship are particularly vulnerable to burst pipes during the winter. Industrial estates or caravan park are also more like to have exposed pipes which can freeze and burst. They’re often empty for days, meaning a burst pipe, inside or outside the building going unnoticed and causing flooding a leaking huge amounts of water.
As winter approaches it is important that you ensure your business is prepared for a decrease in temperature and winter conditions.
