River Steeping

Flood Alert

Levels in the Steeping River remain high but stable following recent rainfall. This will continue to cause the flooding of low lying land and roads close to the river for the next few days. Additional showers are expected over the next few days however our forecasts indicate that flooding to properties isn't likely and therefore flood warnings are not expected to be issued. Burgh Sluice gates are locked open to allow maximum volumes of water to discharge out to sea to help ensure levels within Wainfleet remain as low as possible. We are monitoring river levels, and have staff in the field checking for blockages and clearing weedscreens. Please avoid using low lying footpaths near local watercourses and plan driving routes to avoid low lying roads near rivers, which may be flooded. This message will be updated on Tuesday 12th November or as the situation changes.

This information last updated 6:42pm, Monday 11th November.
