Crook

One of our top priorities is to reduce the risk of sewer flooding to our customers. Through our surface water management programme, ‘Rainwise’, we are working with our partners and local communities by managing the amount of rainwater in our sewer network. We have identified two areas in Crook and Howden le Wear where we can control the amount of rainwater entering the sewer, reducing the likelihood of flooding or pollution.

Investing in drainage

LOOKING AFTER THE ENVIRONMENT AND REDUCING THE RISK OF FLOODING TO HOMES AND BUSINESSES ARE TWO OF OUR TOP PRIORITIES.

AS PART OF THIS COMMITMENT, WE ARE WORKING CLOSELY WITH DURHAM COUNTY COUNCIL AND THE LOCAL COMMUNITY TO REDUCE FLOOD RISK AND IMPROVE YOUR ENVIRONMENT.

Local knowledge is important to help us fully understand the issues affecting your community so that we can work together to identify the right solutions for minimising future flood risk.

If there are any surface water flooding issues in your area that you would like to discuss with us, you can let us know using this portal.
