Reporting a Flood

Following the recent severe flooding which resulted in a number of flooded highways, gardens and some properties, it has been advised by Surrey County Council that many residents took to social media to highlight the various issues rather than reporting these through the official channels.

Surrey County Council have advised that many residents go direct to them rather than through the normal enquiry routes.

In order that flooding issues can be reported quickly and efficiently the following methods should be used;
