If you see major flooding on the roads, it is important to call your local highway authority as soon as possible. For minor flooding, it’s advisable to also report this to your local highways authority but via their website. After heavy rain it can take some time for the water to gradually drain away. If there is still any remaining water on the road or pavement after 2 hours, it should be reported.
Preventative Flood Maintenance
Over time, gullies tend to accumulate silt and various debris, including leaves from seasonal tree shedding. This accumulation can lead to the gullies becoming less efficient or even getting blocked, potentially resulting in flooding during heavy rainfall.
If you come across a blocked roadside gully, it’s advisable to notify your local highways authority. However, if the gully is situated on private property, within a parking area, or on a private road, our gully cleaning and emptying services are available to restore proper drainage. We can also offer slot drainage cleaning when needed.
In cases where it’s essential, we can use our CCTV drainage survey equipment to assess the condition of connecting pipework and ensure it’s clear and in good shape. High-pressure water jetting and root cutting equipment can be utilised to clear the pipework.
Regular inspection of cluverts is important to ensuring that the surface water can flow freely and to reduce the risk of flooding during periods of heavy downfalls. At CountyClean Group, we can clean, unblock and services culverts.
We can conduct surveys on culverts of various sizes using a range of techniques, including CCTV and pole-cam equipment and on-site walk-through inspections. We inspect the culverts for any signs of erosion, joint separation, blockages in the pipe, bottom sag, build-up of sediments inside the culvert and the efficiency of both the inlet and the outlet.
Our latest Kroll combination and recycler units can remove the sludge and can clear debris from culverts quickly allowing water to flow free of blockages. With out Porto reel, we can offer our customers high-pressure water jetting services in rough terrain and remote locations up to 300m from our Kroll recycling unit’s location.
