Flooding can arise from many sources and of course is mainly associated with heavy rainfall, but it can also be caused by blockages in the underground pipes.
Telford & Wrekin Council are responsible for:
- highway drainage, which includes the road gullies and associated pipe work
- land drainage systems such as ditches, culverts and land drains but only on Council owned land
If your problem relates to any of the above then please report the problem using our online form.
Report a flooding or drainage problem
We are not responsible for the drains serving properties. These drains are generally private. If you have a problem with private drains you would normally need to contact a reputable builder or specialist drainage service.
We are not responsible for the main sewers which are generally located in the road, these are maintained by Severn Trent Water.
