Groundwater flooding in Patcham

Flood alert

Groundwater levels are high and very close to the surface, but now slowly falling in Patcham. Groundwater flood impacts are expected to continue this week. Water will remain in a small number of basements until February 2023. Water occurring on roads will likely reduce this week, as groundwater in the community will fall by a couple of centimetres each day. No rain is currently forecast in the week ahead. Long term weather forecasting is difficult, but rain could return from mid February, which could extend or cause the return of groundwater flood impacts. We will continue to monitor levels and forecasts and liaise with Brighton and Hove City Council. If you have pumps to help manage water levels in basements, please ensure they are operational. We will update this message by 17:00 30/01/2023.
