Groundwater flooding in Bramdean and Cheriton

Flood Alert

The Groundwater level at West Meon Hut is high and rising. In the last 3 days, 76mm of rain has been recorded at Warnford, which is more than February’s monthly average rainfall. The level has risen by 0.9m in the last 24 hours. In the next 2 to 3 days rising groundwater could cause cellar flooding to a very small number of properties in Cheriton. Given further rainfall it is possible that sometime over the next few weeks, the level will rise and be high enough to cause cellar flood impacts to properties in Bramdean, but we’ll issue further advice if levels rise. Over the next 5 days, a very small amount of rain is expected each day, which will generally keep levels high and rising. 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 Friday 21/02/2020
