A soggy summer

The emphasis on effective soil and roof drainage systems is particularly strong in the UK at present. After all, the country has just witnessed the second wettest summer since records began.

According to Met Office figures cited by the BBC, June, July and August combined saw more rainfall than at any time since 1912.

Many areas saw localised flooding, causing damage to domestic residences, commercial buildings and infrastructure. It is no wonder then that drainage is high on people’s list of priorities.

Jet stream

Commenting on the weather over recent months, BBC weather presenter Laura Tobin said it has been so wet because a jet stream from America that should have been positioned across Scotland and the north of England was much further south this year. The jet stream is a fast moving band of air that lies high up in the atmosphere.

Ms Tobin remarked: “It meant June was the wettest on record – most places had over one-and-a-half times more rain than they should have. July was also one of the wettest months ever, with some areas like Dorset breaking records. August has been about average.”

More stats

The BBC also noted that the Environment Agency issued more than 1,000 river flood alerts and warnings between June 1st and July 15th. This was the most that had been issued in a summer since 2007.

In addition, there had been just 399 hours of sunshine up to August 28th, meaning the summer was one of the dullest on record.
