Upper River Derwent, Stonethwaite Beck and Derwent Water

Flood Alert

Over the last 12 hours we have seen heavy rainfall in the River Derwent area. This has meant that the lake level in Derwent Water has been rising. The main areas of concern are around Derwent Water, where levels suggest that there will be flooding to low lying land and roads close to the lake today, Sunday 22nd October. We expect the river and lake to remain high throughout today though no flooding to properties is forecast and at this stage we do not expect to issue warnings. There is very little rain forecast for the rest of today, and the lake level is forecast to peak at around midday. Take care near the areas of concern and monitor your local weather conditions. We are constantly monitoring river levels and have staff in the area checking for and clearing blockages in this location. This message will be updated this evening or earlier if the situation changes.

This information last updated 9:18am, Sunday 22nd October.
