Flooding causes blocked drains on Kenley Industrial Estate


Posted on: February 12th, 2014

Large parts of Kenley in Surrey have been flooded as a result of the recent heavy rainfall and the river Bourne flooding which has caused blocked drains which in turn has led to the build up of surface water. Here on the Bushy Close Industrial Estate where the Scanprobe offices are located, blocked drains and flooded drainage and sewer systems have resulted in flooding around the units necessitating the need for businesses to erect flood defenses to protect property and equipment.

The source of the river Bourne is at nearby Warlingham and it has taken 2 – 3 days for the deluge of water to travel down and take its full effect on the Kenley area.
