Operational Flood Response

We provide technical assistance to the Emergency Planners in the 4 Local Authorities within the Coastal Partnership for Coastal Flooding Response. In addition we undertake the instruction and supervision of the closure of the floodgate system in Old Portsmouth and the installation of the Stormboards at Eastoke at the start and end of the winter period.

During the winter we have Coastal Duty Officers in place when the tabled tide is 4.7mCD or higher at Portsmouth, when the likelihood of a Coastal Flooding Response is higher. The officers will support the Emergency Planners and co-ordinate the response on site at Old Portsmouth, and Eastoke if required.

A response is undertaken when the Environment Agency issue a Flood Warning for areas covered by the Coastal Partnership. We work with our Emergency Planning partners to provide a suitable response for the Coastal Flooding predicted.
