Following the flooding in the borough last year, Solihull Council has invested in a new app which will allow residents to be more flood aware.
Solihull Council has collaborated with Vision Link to develop the new app, which allows people to view the Council’s network of cameras and sensors which monitor water levels. Users can also receive flood warnings 24/7.
The app, called the Vision Link Community App, costs nothing, is advert free and works through Wi-Fi and mobile data. It displays cameras based on the user’s location and is available on Android and iPhone.
The pairing code for Solihull is 925728.
Cabinet Member for Environment and Highways Cllr Ken Hawkins, commented:
“This is a great initiative, with this app allowing residents throughout Solihull to become more flood aware and keep up to date with all the latest flooding information. I would encourage all residents to download this free app and take advantage of this excellent service”.
