Flood protection for your home

If your house is at risk of flooding, or has flooded in the past, there are steps you can take to reduce the damage flooding can cause.

It is your responsibility to protect your property from flooding.


The most important thing is to prepare in advance. You will not have time to buy or put measures in place once flooding is likely.

We recommend that if you are at risk of flooding that, instead of using sandbags, you carry out more permanent and effective measures to protect your property.
