The SWIM Project – Flood Reporting

The SWIM Project

SWIM is a straightforward, web-based system which allows Members of the Public, Flood Wardens and Flood Risk Management Authorities to enter details about property flooding in one place.

The system can be a used to aid multiple agencies in their combined response to flooding both during an event and after. Records collected are spatially referenced and can therefore be analysed on a map or in summary reports. During an flood record point, SWIM can be used to inform decision makers and provide an overall picture of what problems exists over a geographical area.

This helps agencies better prioritise assistance both during and after an event.

This is the link to the reporting site SWIM and will be added to the main menu on the Fretherne with Saul Parish Council Website.

Using SWIM

If you are a member of the public then please fill in details of flooding which has impacted your property.

All data entered will be reviewed by one of the organisations involved in the SWIM project.

The SWIM project has been developed by the GeoWessex partnership. The developers are the Dorset Council Geographical Information Team working with colleagues from the Environment Agency and the Dorset Council Flood Risk team.
