Report Flooding from Surface Water and Ground Water

Periods of heavy or prolonged rainfall will often overwhelm the drainage system, which is not designed to deal with excessive wet weather. This may lead to water collecting around drains and gullies or dips in the land.  This will likely drain away once the drainage system has recovered.

 

However if flooding has occurred or you believe your property is at threat due to excessive water after heavy rain or from water that appears to be coming up from the ground, please contact Bedford Borough Council’s Resilience Team.
