11.11.2021:    Preparation for mitigation of flood damage and risk limitation.


According to the Environment Agency, over five million people in the UK live and work in properties at risk of flooding from rivers or the sea, whilst more face flood threats from groundwater, surface water, sewers, and reservoirs.


In recent weeks and months we have seen properties in Alresford on Ford Lane, Wivenhoe Road, Coach Road and Heath Road all affected by deep surface water and the risk of damage from water ingress.
