Flood Protection - Tewkesbury

CLIENT

Tewkesbury Borough Council

THE PROBLEM

Tewkesbury was recognised as one of the worst affected areas during the 2007 floods that hit the UK. Its location means the county is vulnerable to flooding as two sizable rivers, the Severn and Avon, are nearby.

 In July 2007, the town was overwhelmed when heavy downpours caused surrounding rivers to burst their banks. The resulting flooding was rapid resulting in significant damage to properties and infrastructure.

Kenulf Road was one area badly affected. Flooding occurred through airbricks and front doors into residents’ homes leaving them underwater  for several hours until levels subsided.

UKFB was awarded the tender to survey and install property level protection measures to seven properties in Kenulf Road on behalf of Tewkesbury Council. Working together with RAB Consultants, UKFB surveyed each property to identify all possible points of water ingress. Flood Angel® Flood Defender™ Doors, Anti-Flood Airbricks and 160mm/110mm Non-Return Valves were specified and installed to manage the risk of flooding in the future.
