Following the recent latest flooding closures at Riverside recycling centre, including again yesterday, we sought assurances that steps were being taken to tackle the issue.
The Waste Service Manager at the City Council has now advised :
"We have been in discussion with council colleagues and we will look to consider further mitigations, for significant flooding being experienced during extreme flood events. This will include:
+ The existing drainage runs
+ The flood alleviation pumps
+ The Flood Emergency Plan
We will look to undertake this work as quickly as possible."
