Areas within Swale can flood in certain conditions (heavy rainfall coinciding with an unusually high tide). If you experience flooding or think that your property is at risk of flooding please refer to the attached flooding leaflet. In all other cases of flooding contact the Environment Agency on 0800 80 70 60. The Council do not provide sandbags so if you think your property is at risk of flooding you should make your own arrangements.
Information and flood warnings are available on the Environment Agency's website as well as advice booklets.
The Environment Agency offers advice about what to do before, during, and after a flood. The leaflet is also available from district councils, libraries and police stations.
If your road floods during heavy rainfall, please report it using the Kent County Council Online Maintenance Form so we can try and rectify the problem.
Zurich Flood Guide is a useful document for information about flooding.
