Skewen Flooding Update – Friday 29 January

29 January 2021

The clean-up operation of the highways within the affected area has continued today. Waste teams have been on site from 2pm until 5 pm today to help residents to dispose of flood damaged possessions, and the teams will be there again tomorrow (Saturday) and on Sunday from 8am to 4pm. Please remember to take photos or video of any items before you dispose of them for insurance purposes.If you need help with the disposal of flood damaged items please let us know by emailing

Our drainage team will be doing work over the weekend to deal with surface water outside 87 Dynevor Road for the safety of road users and in readiness for reintroduction of bus services.

Following concerns raised by residents, we are arranging for the council’s arborist to check the stability of trees both to the front and rear of Sunnyland Crescent.

Welsh Water confirmed earlier today that they are satisfied that there was no breach of their drinking water infrastructure and as such water supplies within the area are safe. Residents are reminded of the need however to ensure that all internal water fixtures within the property are cleaned i.e. sinks and taps, before use.

With further rain forecast, we continue to monitor the temporary drainage arrangements.
