Low Barlings and the Short Ferry Area

Flood Warning

River levels remain high in the Barlings Eau following heavy rainfall over the last few days. Do not walk on flood banks. We are working with the Internal Drainage Board to pump the water from the breach on the Barlings Eau near Short Ferry. Short Ferry Road remains flooded and impassable. Large areas of farmland are currently flooded and there remains a risk to low lying properties in this area. It will be several days before levels in the Low Barlings area and River Witham fall sufficiently enough for the water to be pumped back successfully into the rivers. Stay safe and be aware of your local surroundings. Avoid contact with flood water. We will be closely monitoring the situation and this message will be updated on Wednesday 13th November or as the situation changes.

This information last updated 8:05pm, Tuesday 12th November.
