Internal and external sewer flooding is caused when sewers become overloaded as a result of severe weather, equipment failure, blockages or sewer collapses.
Internal sewer flooding is one of the most distressing service failures for a customer and reducing it is a very high customer priority.
Flooding caused by assets which are beyond the our control is excluded, eg, fluvial and coastal flooding.
