Pollution and Flooding Response

We aim to attend internal or external flooding within four hours, at any time throughout the year.

Nobody wants to find sewage waste overflowing into their home, business or garden. When it does happen our crews work hard to clean up and put everything back as it was as quickly as possible. Read about a recent case where a blocked drain caused complications.

Once on site we will:

  • Contain the flood by using brooms, sandbags, bunds etc.
  • Identify the source of the problem.
  • Make recommendations on the best measures to rectify the problem and to eliminate the risk of further occurrences.
  • Remove contaminated water from site to a licensed disposal site.
  • Pump flood water from property and land.
  • Clean and disinfect the area locally.
  • Fence off contaminated land to prevent livestock entering area.
  • Make recommendations for specialist valet, drying and dehumidifying services.

Our specialist ADR (Hazchem) teams are available for emergency spillages, industrial accidents and pollution incidents involving dangerous substances. Our fleet of ADR specification tankers and our highly qualified personnel ensure the safe collection and disposal of all kinds of chemical wastes.

The MTS blocked drain service is available 24 hours, seven days a week. You should always act quickly when you discover a drain problem to avoid overflow of sewage and potential risk to health.

To help avoid blockages, only ever flush pee, poo and paper down the toilet. That means no sanitary items, wet wipes, food waste, fat, grease or anything else. Fat, oils and grease can create particularly nasty problems over time.

If you notice a roadside gully flooding, please contact your local highways authority as it is their responsibility.

To report pollution incidents to water or land please contact the Environment Agency on 0800 807060.
