Patcham flood alert.

Flooding at Patcham Place in November 2000
The Environment Agency has issued a flood alert for Patcham after a rise in water levels following heavy rain.

The Council is monitoring the ground water level and working with the Environment Agency and East Sussex Fire and Rescue Service to provide support, if necessary, to residents in affected properties.

The area was recently leafleted for households to join up to the flood alert scheme. Those households in the flood alert area will now receive a phone call advising them of the alert. You can join up to the flood alert programme here.

The homes in danger of flooding have being visited by council officers. Anyone in the area in need of more information can also email the council team on Emails will be answered as soon as possible.

Southern Water is monitoring water levels and how the sewage system is coping with the excess water.

After the year 2000 flooding various improvements were made to the main sewer, which follows the line of the London Road. This may be the first occasion since 2000 that the work has been seriously tested.
