  • Section 19 Flood Investigations – including thresholds for when an investigation may be carried out.
  • Desk-based Flood Investigations – including thresholds for when an investigation may be carried out.
  • Priority of investigations in the event of a significant rainfall event.
  • Role of the responding Flood Risk Officer.
  • The process followed when a Flood Investigation is started.
  • Investigation Reports – including when these will be published.
  • Data Protection – outlining the process followed for Flood Investigations and information supplied to support them.

If there is any information that is not covered in the Flood Investigation Protocol please contact Flood Risk Management at flooding@southampton.gov.uk and we would be happy to advise.
