Doncaster Council would like to address the rumours that we are ‘opening flood gates’

This is not the case - there are no flood gates in the area

We’d like to address rumours that we are ‘opening flood gates’ in some areas. This is not the case – there are no flood gates in the area. Doncaster drainage systems are doing their job in moving water along the minor rivers and streams in the area to eventually fill the Bentley Ings. Unfortunately, due to high water levels some streets are experiencing the impact of this, but this is how the drainage system is designed to work. 

We are continuing to support residents affected by flooding and anyone needing support should call the emergency helpline on 01302 735688.
