WHY DO WE FLOOD

This area suffers from three kinds of flooding, caused by:

  • Surface Water: Heavy or prolonged rainfall into damaged, blocked or insufficient drains. When drains do get overwhelmed contamination by sewage will usually be an extra hazard.
  • Ground Water: Local geology permits ground water to accumulate all over the area and this comes up regularly in some basements but could occur almost anywhere.
  • Tidal Surges: high spring tides in adverse weather can result in flooding the area surrounding the harbour, especially bad for West Bank residents.
