Latest update

Our engineers are working hard to help our sewer network deal with the very heavy rain we have seen over the last few days.

We're currently visiting homes and business affected by the rainfall, in particular those that have experienced sewer flooding.
There are a large number of properties affected by this and we are working as fast as we can to get to everyone.

During this time we are still experiencing a high number of calls as a result of the wet weather and flash flooding.

Areas affected

We currently have engineers in many areas across the region and are aware of problems in RG7, GU4, NW10, SW6, W4, SW1V, SW1P, RM6, DA8, IG5, IG6, E5, RM2, RM7, RM11, RM13, RM14, SE1, SW11, CRO, SE6, SE12, SW8, SWE17, SW17, SW18, SW19, SW20, W6, KT9, KT3, KT21, KT16 and KT10, amongst other areas.

To help us prioritise the prevention of flooding to customers' homes during the persistent wet weather, if you have a non-urgent enquiry please contact us when water levels have subsided.

More about sewer flooding

Our sewers are designed to cope with the vast majority of storms but occasionally rainfall can be so heavy that it overwhelms the system. When this happens, sewage can overflow from manholes and gullies. If you are affected by an overflowing manhole we will arrange to attend and investigate and, in some cases resolve or alleviate the issue, however until the capacity of the sewers return to normal, you may still experience issues with waste surcharge.

If you have reported an issue to us and you find things do return to normal, it would be great if you could tell us via Facebook or Twitter
