FLOOD RISK MANAGEMENT
If your Parish or Town is affected by flooding, then any information you can supply during or after a flood is incredibly valuable in helping the authorities get a picture of unfolding events and assist with the recovery process. You can be our eyes and ears on the ground.
A quick photo or a few details of streets and especially properties flooded is extremely helpful for us when investigating the cause of a flood event. We have created a guidance document https://new.devon.gov.uk/floodriskmanagement/report-flooding-to-property/ to assist with anyone on the ground, detailing what to look for and especially precautions to take. You can also use our report flooding to a property form. Above all, we want to emphasise that you do not put yourself in danger to collect any information. If you do decide to go out on site, wait until it is safe to do so, always let somebody know and report back afterwards.
Please send any information and photos through to email@example.com
however, please note that this information is purely for the flood investigation and recovery process. If you would like a response to a particular issue, please contact us directly or to report flooding on the highway and blocked drains, please continue to use the Roads and Transport report a problem page or call 0345 155 1004.
