  • The Risk of Flooding from Surface Water map shows the areas that are at risk from surface water flooding. If you disagree with the risk of flooding displayed on this map, where you have appropriate evidence (anecdotal evidence alone will not be sufficient), we will review this to see if it can be used to help the Environment Agency update this risk. However, without appropriate evidence, we cannot recommend changes to the map. If you require more information about Evidence Review Requests, please email the Environment Agency’s National Customer Contact Centre at:

  • Northamptonshire County Council, supported by ESI Ltd, previously undertook a study to assess the risk of flooding from groundwater across the county. Due to license restrictions we cannot publish these maps in an interactive format on this page, however full details of the study and a PDF document of the map can be found in the Flood Library.
