Before you start

This service uses computer models to assess an area’s long term risk from:

  • rivers and the sea
  • surface water
  • reservoirs
  • some groundwater

The results are an indicator of an area’s flood risk, particularly the likelihood of surface water flooding.

It is not suitable for identifying whether an individual property will flood. It does not include the flood risk from sources such as blocked drains and burst pipes.
