Flooding and severe weather

We manage the risk of surface and groundwater flooding in Leicester.

Environment Agency

We also work closely with the Environment Agency, which is responsible for flooding from large rivers, and Severn Trent Water which is responsible for sewers in the city. Anyone wanting to carry out work in a watercourse will probably need consent from us or the Environment Agency.

We have a register of structures which have a significant impact upon flooding and a record of all flood incidents reported to us.

Report a flood

If there is a risk to life call 999. Otherwise, please report floods by filling out our online form. If you don't find the information you need there, email flooding@leicester.gov.uk.

Sewer floods should be reported to other organisations, such as Severn Trent Water on 0800 783 4444.
