How to report an issue


Help your community by becoming a Flood Warden

Flood wardens are volunteers trained to help and prepare people in local communities that are at risk of flooding. They play an important role in the preparing a community flood plan and putting it in to practice.

They also provide a vital link between a local community and those responsible for responding to a flood.
