We are working together with the community to reduce the risk of future flooding in areas of Crook as part of our surface water management programme, Rainwise.

Start Date

November, 2016

Estimated End Date

December, 2018



Update by Loren Jennings

Good morning, everyone.

I wanted to let you know that we are looking seriously at opportunities for flood risk reduction in proximity of High Hope Street in Crook and Hargill Road in Howden-le-Wear.  To further investigate, we are completing surveys over the coming week, so you may see more activity than you typically might be used to.    

These surveys are to measure the sewer network, map the ground surfaces and check for underground utilities.  This is important as these details would help us design a construction project to reduce the risk of flooding and pollution in your communities.

Please let me know if you have any questions.
