Groundwater flooding in the Upper Og Valley

Flood alert

Groundwater levels have risen in response to the recent rainfall at our observation borehole in Draycot Foliat in the Og Valley area. Groundwater levels are above normal for this time of year and have reached a level where communities may be affected by flooding from groundwater over the coming days. Levels remain high in this area but are currently declining. The forecast for today (23/01/23) is dry with no further rainfall expected and remains fairly settled until the end of the week. We expect groundwater levels to remain high. Low-lying land and roads will therefore continue to be at risk of flooding. Due to the nature of groundwater behaviour, this situation could continue for several weeks or longer. We are continuing to monitor groundwater levels and will update this message by 30/01/23, or as the situation changes.
