In the wake of heavy snowfall and persistent wet and wintry weather, the sudden warmer temperatures that follow often cause flooding. Flooding happens where the sheer volume of water is too much and has nowhere to go. It could be the result of heavy rainfall, a river bursting or breaking its banks or melt water pouring off land and fields into drains and onto the road.
2) What to do if flooding is imminent
Gov.uk also issues general guidance in the event of flooding.
3) Emergency equipment hire for clean up and recovery after flooding
Once water has receded, there’s the job of remediation; getting back to normal as soon as possible. Floodwaters can contain pathogenic and non-pathogenic agents that may remain when the waters recede. Problems with sewers and farm land can lead to raw human or animal waste in floodwaters, which can be a health risk if not cleaned-up properly.
