Flooding Hotspots

With an increasing number of flooding events making headlines, there is a greater awareness of the cost in terms of damage, disruption and casualties. This is an important area of concern for all highways authorities who are investing in a programme to tackle the issue.

DDC have carried out numerous investigation surveys in Flooding Hotspot locations and in many cases, we find that flooding is due to poor or a lack of drainage maintenance. In these areas, DDC pre-cleanse the whole drainage system before undertaking a Detailed Defect Survey. In most of cases cleansing the drainage system resolves the issue. Where this is not the case and defects are found within the drainage system, these are reported back to our client along with recommendations for remediation works.
