Surrey is vulnerable to two types of flooding:
- Inundation of floodplains by river water.
- Local flooding when the drainage network is overwhelmed by intense rain storms.
The Environment Agency has an important role in warning people about the risk of flooding, and in reducing the likelihood of flooding from rivers and the sea.
The Environment Agency provides advice on:
- The risk of flooding.
- Flood warnings.
- How to limit the effects of floods to you and your property.
- What to do when flooding is imminent.
- How to clean up after a flood.
