Sewer flooding

Sewer flooding occurs when sewers are overwhelmed by heavy rainfall or when they become blocked.

Individual property and land owners have responsibility for their own piped drainage infrastructure. Where piped drainage becomes part of the general shared infrastructure it is generally adopted as public and becomes the responsibility of Severn Trent Water.

Sewer flooding problems can be reported to Severn Trent Water on 0800 783 4444.
