Flooding and severe weather

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

Further information

Have your say on the flood risk action plan

We would like to hear your views on the flood risk action plan (Leicester Integrated Flood Risk Management Strategy) and how we can improve the city’s natural river environment while managing future flood risks in Leicester. To have your say, please follow the link below:

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.

Reporting a flood

If it's an emergency call 999. Otherwise, please use the contact us information at the bottom of the page.

You can also report floods to us by calling 0116 454 1001, or 0116 254 4344 outside office hours.

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