Groundwater flooding in Bishops Sutton

Flood Alert

The Groundwater at Bishop’s Sutton is very high, but levels have fallen a little since Monday (17/02/2020). Groundwater is just at the level where it could cause cellar flooding to a very small number of properties in Bishop’s Sutton. It will also begin to prevent septic tanks from operating effectively and, will cause minor impact road flooding. Over the next 5 days, small amounts of rain are expected each day. This will keep levels high, and fairly stable throughout this time. We continue to monitor the forecast. If you use pumps to help reduce water levels, please ensure they can operate. This Flood Alert will be updated by 12:00 on Thursday 27/02/2020.
