The presentation looks at the initial response to a flooding incident from the point-of-view of a CHaPD unit who had to risk assess the potential implications from chemical loss to the general environment and the potential impact on public health. The Morpeth flooding event of September 2008 tested the risk assessment methodology piloted in the South Yorkshire floods and highlighted where some critical information for the risk assessment was missing and attention needed.
