Reminder for Ditch Maintenance:-

Hampshire County Council has asked us to publish the following information:-

Unfortunately, it is fast becoming the time of year when we need to think about the state of Hampshire’s land drainage network.

As the rain begins in earnest and leaves begin to fall, all riparian owners (those who have watercourses on or bordering their properties) across Hampshire, and beyond, should be looking at the state of their drainage ditches, culverts and other watercourses to ensure the clear transference of rain water and a reduced risk of localised flooding.

Please find a poster detailing what responsibilities riparian owners have and guidance on how to undertake this maintenance to reduce flooding from surface water after a rain event.

If you have any further enquiries regarding this or any other areas of flood risk management, please visit HCC’s Flood and Water Management team’s web page at
