Flash floods, 12 July

Posted on 19/8/2021

Camden Council is requesting that anyone who noticed or experienced flooding should report this to: GREENCAMDEN@CAMDEN.GOV.UK

Camden is particularly keen to learn about the following types of flooding:

  • internal: clean water or sewage (please say which) at a property, eg in basement, or coming up through the floor into the ground floor, or simply entering the property from outside
  • external: at a building site (eg an open basement or demolition site), where water is seen to flow out of or through holes in the ground.

If you should have any photos of flooded properties or streets (where the drains were not coping), these would also be extremely helpful. Camden produces a map of roads affected by flooding so that developers know where to be particularly careful not to add to water run-off.

The last two flood years for Hampstead were 1976 and 2002, but the maps of flooding for these two years included only the roads for which flooding
was reported. It is important that Camden is aware where properties flood. Camden would not divulge which properties were flooded, only mapping the roads affected.
