Opus install sandbags to protect homes

Installing Sandbags 1600 900

In an area plagued by flooding problems, residents have made a determined effort to protect their homes. People living in Lumley Road, Emsworth, were joined by volunteers, including staff from Opus International Consultants (Opus), who spent the day building flood defences with hundreds of sandbags.

In Dec 2013, residents were left devastated when the banks of the River Ems broke and their homes flooded. Opus is part of the Emsworth Flood Forum (Hampshire) and had the opportunity to get involved in this community project.
