NRW raising flood awareness in Resolven
Natural Resources Wales (NRW) will be going door to door in Resolven, Neath, next week to inform and educate residents how they can protect themselves in the event of flooding.
Resolven is located near the River Neath and the Clydach Brook and currently has over 600 properties at risk of flooding.
The event will take place on 9 and 10 April with NRW staff visiting over 200 properties that have yet to sign up to the flood warning service.
During these visits, staff will talk to residents about community and business flood plans and the benefits of signing up to receive flood alerts.
Ffion Edwards, Flood Incident Management Advisor for NRW, said:
“Flooding can devastate communities and it’s one of our biggest priorities to protect people from its effects.
“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.”
It’s free to sign up for flood warnings and people can receive them via email, text or over the phone.
