Investigating flooding yourself

If you investigate flooding on public streets, roads and highways, please do not lift manhole covers. This can transfer the problem through the surface water system or the foul water system to other people who live further away. It is also dangerous to leave man hole covers open as someone could fall in the hole.

This is especially important in deep waters as it is more difficult to see the hazard beneath the water.
