South East Somerset Rivers, Upper Reaches

Flood Alert

This flood alert has been in place over the last few days due to the water level in Sherborne Lake on the River Yeo. The lake level has now fallen below alert level and is currently steady, but is likely to rise again in response to today’s rain. The rain is forecast to continue until about 18:00 today, Tuesday 18/12/2018. The levels on the River Wriggle at Chetnole, the River Yeo at Pen Mill, and the River Cam at Weston Bampfylde are now rising. The River Cam is forecast to reach alert level later this afternoon. Significant impacts are not expected. Catchments are very wet and localised flooding of low lying land and roads is possible. We have teams checking the operation of rivers and structures, such as debris screens, culverts, bridges and sluices. Occasional heavy showers are forecast through tonight and tomorrow, Wednesday 19/12/2018. We will continue to monitor the situation and will update this message tomorrow.

This information last updated 3:22pm, Tuesday 18th December.
