NRW raising flood awareness in Aberkenfig07/12/2019
Natural Resources Wales (NRW) will be going door to door in Aberkenfig this week to provide practical advice and information to the public on how they can prepare and respond quicker in the event of a flood.
Aberkenfig is located near the River Llynfi and currently has over 800 properties at risk of flooding.
The event will take place on the 27 and 28 of June with NRW staff visiting properties that have yet to sign up to the free flood warning service.
During these visits staff will talk to residents about community and business flood plans.
They will also be promoting the benefits of signing up to receive flood warnings which can be received via text email or over the phone.
Ffion Edwards, Flood Incident Management Advisor for NRW, said:
“Flooding can have a devastating impact, causing many thousands of pounds worth of damage, and untold emotional distress.
“Community flood plans are an excellent opportunity for people to work with each other to build community resilience and can act as a springboard for other beneficial community activities.
“This is one of many engagement days we have planned around Wales and we’re hoping more and more people will see the benefits of signing up to our flood warning system.”
