What to do if it floods

In the light of the recent heavy rain, the Wiltshire Council Flood Defence Officer has issued the following advice:
  • Report flooding to highways via the My Wilts App – staff are out and about across the county
  • Report any instances of internal property flooding – if we don’t know about it we can’t help – use the My Wilts app to report in the first instance and email the drainage team drainage@wiltshire.gov.uk
  • Check on vulnerable neighbours or properties at risk and deploy property defences if you have them
  • Take photographs and information about any flooding such as nos of properties affected, approximate depths and flow path and email them to us.
  • Do not enter flood water
  • Be mindful of staying safe when out and about and let other people know if you have to go out in the bad weather
Stay safe!
