The recent rain and storms have seen calls to Severn Trent double. Pete Collins, waste water manager for Severn Trent, said: “Over the last few days, we’ve seen more than double the amount of calls that we would normally see at this time of year.” “Most of these calls are to get advice on or to report incidents of flooding, which we are monitoring and keeping a close eye on.” Severn Trent customers are being urged to check if water is rainwater or sewage before making a call - the former will see flooding stop naturally when rain stops. If sewage is escaping, call Severn Trent on 0800 783 4444 for assistance. Local councils are responsible for road drainage.
