Flood prevention or flood response?

After the UK’s wettest February on record with heavy storms and torrential rain causing widespread flooding across the UK, we’re preparing for a season of Spring storms that threaten our already rain-ravaged communities. Our tankering services, including a fleet of Jet Vacs and vacuum tankers, can provide flood relief for homeowners and businesses 24/7. Just one of our flood mitigation services, we’re also experienced at installing flood barriers, flood gates, and other flood defences.

Our flood tankering services

Our fleet of vacuum tankers can cope with high volumes of floodwater and sludge fast, so your drains can start working properly again. We have 3,000, 4,000 and 6,000 gallon capacity vacuum tankers, which can efficiently remove thousands of gallons of floodwater, debris and waste in minutes. We start by vacuuming your floodwater and sludge, providing speedy liquid waste disposal that meets UK environmental legislation. Our commercial tanker services team can also use high-pressure water jetting to clear any blockages, so your drainage systems can get back to work.

Experts in flood response

Your Wilkinson Environmental Ltd team are experts in flood response – they know the mess and stress a flooded home, business, construction site, or even community can bring. And, with our high-tech tankering services, we have the equipment, expertise, and experience to resolve your flooding issues fast. From vacuuming floodwater and using high-pressure water jetting on sludge-filled domestic drains, to providing liquid waste disposal (including contaminated waste disposal) in flood-hit communities, our teams have seen and done it all.

Experts in flood mitigation services

As well as our flooding and tanking services, we also carry out flood mitigation work across the UK, with local teams able to help with flood prevention measures like:

  • gully cleaning
  • septic tank cleaning
  • oil interceptor cleaning
  • pump station cleaning
  • culvert cleaning

And, if a large storm is forecast, we also provide flood prevention equipment like flood barriers and flood gates. These flood defences can save commercial and domestic premises and prevent or reduce the need for commercial tanker services like vacuuming and high-pressure water jetting after a storm. Often flooded areas are hit with multiple storms, so efficient liquid waste disposal after the first storm is essential to prevent extra damage during the next downpour. Our teams work around the clock to clear floodwater and provide contaminated waste disposal.

DIY flood prevention

Keeping the area around your drainage systems well maintained and free of mess and debris can help with flood prevention, but you can also help avoid costly flooding by regularly arranging gully cleaning, septic tank cleaning, culvert cleaning, oil interceptor cleaning, and pump station maintenance.

Local flood response teams

Our flooding and tankering services teams work across Shropshire, Warwickshire, Gloucestershire, Worcestershire, the West Midlands, and the River Severn region. Providing flood vacuuming, high-pressure water jetting, and liquid waste disposal (including contaminated waste disposal), and defences like flood barriers and flood gates, our local commercial tanker services are on call 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

Whether you need flood mitigation services or our emergency commercial tanker services, our Wilkinson Environmental Ltd experts are here to help.
