Reporting current and past flooding for future investigation

Knowing more about flooding and flood risk in Derbyshire is important to us.

We'd appreciate your help by reporting any previous flooding in Derbyshire. This will help us build up our knowledge of areas subject to flooding and flooding sources in the county.

There's no more valuable source of information on flooding than those who have witnessed and experienced it in their area first hand. This is why we're trying to build up a database of your knowledge of historic flooding issues in your local community.

Spend a few moments of your time to let us know about any floods using the survey of flood incident form, which you can download from the related documents section of this page. We can work to find a solution to the issues causing the flooding and reduce the likelihood of, or best prepare you for, a similar event in the future.

We're looking for all the information you can give us regardless of how long ago the flood may have occurred. Even if you haven't seen any similar event happen since, it doesn't necessarily mean it won't happen in the future if the weather conditions allowed it.
