Groundwater flooding in the Meon Valley from East Meon to Soberton

Flood alert

In the Meon Valley, groundwater is high but continues to fall following dry weather this week. Since Monday 23/01/2023, the level has fallen by 40cm. Flows are now reducing in the winterbourne as it flows across Rectory Lane, Meonstoke and behind the Buck’s Head pub. Isolated properties may be experiencing cellar flooding. Over the next 5 days, the dry weather is expected to continue. This will allow the groundwater level to continue falling. Further unsettled weather is forecast in February 2023. However, confidence on the location and intensity of any rainfall event remains low. If heavy rain does affect the Meon Valley, groundwater will begin to rise again. We continue to monitor the situation. If you use pumps to reduce water levels, please ensure they can operate, and remain prepared for flooding this winter. This Flood Alert will be updated by 17:00 on Friday 03/02/2023.
