We will, on becoming aware of a flood in the St Helens area, carry out a Post Incident Review to determine the consequences of the flooding incident.
The Post Incident Review will determine the likely cause of the flooding and its effects. If a flood event is deemed to have had a significant consequence, then a Formal Investigation of the flooding incident will be undertaken.
A flood event with significant consequences is one that has had, one or more of the following impacts:
Timescales are subject to the scale of incidents being investigated. Internal flooding does not include the flooding of gardens and garages; only properties where internal flooding is above threshold level.
We do not have a duty to protect homes from surface water flooding but have powers to pursue works, if deemed appropriate and feasible to do so. A list of all published investigations will be made available.
Recorded incidents from 2011 onwards.
