Rhondda Cynon Taf Council is offering assistance to flood victims in Treorchy
Rhondda Cynon Taf Council has been assisting residents after a serious flooding incident in Treorchy at the weekend.
Failure to a Dwr Cyrmu Welsh Water pumping station resulted in up to 18 inches of water cascading through the ground floor of around 30 terraced properties in the vicinity of High Street and Rees Street.
Council staff have been at the scene throughout, helpjng with the massive clean-up operation. A rescue centre was also set up for residents at the nearby Rhondda Sports Centre.
The incident occurred on Saturday evening (December 14) during the industrial action of the South Wales Fire Service. Rhondda Cynon Taf Council worked with South Wales Police, Dwr Cymru Welsh Water and Natural Resources Wales.
Dwr Cymru Welsh Water has set up a mobile unit near the Red Cow public house. Rhondda Cynon Taf Council will also remain at the scene this week offering advice to those who need it. Our thoughts are with the flood victims at this very traumatic time.
