Groundwater flooding in Hursley

Flood Alert

Following 6 consecutive months of above average rainfall, groundwater levels in Hursley are high and continue to rise. The current rate of rise is 0.1m per day. The groundwater is still responding to last week’s rainfall. From Sunday (26/01/2020) further rain is forecast. On Monday (27/01/2020) in particular, the rainfall could be heavy. If heavy rain affects Hursley, then groundwater will continue to rise. From Friday (31/01/2020) onwards, levels could be high enough to cause cellar flooding in the lower part of the village at the pub and South End Close. Currently, we do not expect widespread flood impacts in the village, although our 6 to 10 day outlook, suggests the weather could remain unsettled. We continue to monitor the forecast. Please ensure that any pumps used to protect property can operate if required, and consider activating village flood plans. This Flood Alert will be updated by Friday 31/01/2020.
