Flood warning and information

For further information on flooding in Scotland and up to date accurate weather warnings please see the links below:

Scotland now has a direct flood warning service which is provided by the Scottish Environment Protection Agency (SEPA). It allows the user to sign up to receive free SEPA flood warning messages direct to a landline or mobile phone, notifying the user when a flood warning message has been issued in the local area.

Blockages in rivers and burns

Rubbish dumped in rivers and burns can result in blockages, choking up culverts and seriously increasing the risk of flooding. If you see rubbish dumped in or along a river/burn please contact Environmental Services via the link below.

If the blockage relates to road drainage or blocked road gullies, this can be reported either by phoning the number above or through Aberdeen City Council's online reporting facility:

Any faults relating to sewerage or sewage should be reported to Scottish Water on 0845 601 8855 or in the event of an emergency 0845 600 8855. Alternatively you can email Scottish Water on
