Flooding to Cellars

(where not from sewers, drains, water mains or blocked watercourses)

Water can enter your basement in one of three ways.

  • Through cracks in the cellar wall
  • Through the joint between the cellar wall and the cellarfloor
  • Through the cellar window well

 

Property owners are responsible for dealing with groundwater water ingress into cellars. Note that specialist advice should be sought before preventing water ingress by sealing walls externally or internally. The Council may be able to help investigate the source of the water, provided that your water company has already investigated and ruled out the possibility of leakage from sewers and water mains.
