According to the latest reports on the impacts of climate change in the UK, the risk of flooding is set to increase due to rising sea levels, coastal erosion and increasingly severe and frequent rainstorms.

The Environment Agency warns that over five million properties in the UK are at risk of flooding by rivers, the sea and surface water flooding from overflowing drains.

The misery caused by flooding is a growing problem with the loss of valuable and often irreplaceable items and significant structural damage to properties. Many businesses have suffered serious setbacks and, in some cases, have ceased trading following the effects of a flood incident.

As the frequency of flood incidents increases, there is a growing risk to properties not adequately protected by flood defences or not covered by the Environment Agency flood warning system. Andel is now investing in flood defence and warning systems to protect UK homes and businesses. Andel has gained a wealth of experience in the science and technology involved in the protection of the built and natural environments from leaks, oil spills and surface-water drainage problems. The business is looking to familiar, tried and tested technologies and adapting to effective flood defence applications.
