Flooding can be a very stressful and upsetting experience. At Uisce Éireann, we work very hard to prevent flooding. However, there are many reasons why flooding can occur that are beyond our control. See what can cause it or contact us to report a flood.


Blocked drains can cause flooding and damage to your home. Spot the signs and find out if you have an internal or external issue, and see who is responsible for clearing them.
