Flooding in North Dorset
We will give advice and assistance where possible at times of flooding. We provide bulk sand and bags to communities that are high risk. We also hold a stock of emergency sandbags which can be requested via your local Flood Warden or through your Parish or Town Council.
Sandbags are delivered by the Dorset Waste Partnership which will use its best endeavours during flood events, however, their resources are spread across the county and their ability to deliver may be disrupted in emergencies. This service cannot be guaranteed in the case of widespread flooding or outside of normal hours.
If you own a property in an area susceptible to flooding you should consider making advance preparations for a flood event.
