Groundwater flooding in Kimpton and Lilley Bottom

Warning no longer in force

The risk of groundwater flooding at Kimpton and Lilley Bottom has reduced and the flood alert has now been removed.

The level at the Lilley Bottom borehole has dropped since its peak in late April and is continuing to fall. Any flooding observed over the winter and spring has been minor and is thought to have now receded.

As measured and forecast rainfall are now at average levels, and capacity in the soil is increasing due to recent drier weather, there is no risk of groundwater flooding in the next few weeks.

We will continue to monitor the Lilley Bottom borehole once a week as usual.
