Groundwater flooding in West Dean, Singleton, Charlton, East Dean and Chilgrove

Flood alert

Groundwater is high, within 40cm of the surface at the East Dean borehole, but slowly falling. Only one or two brief showers have been recorded over the past week. Minor groundwater flood impacts are expected to continue, affecting the ability of the sewage network to operate in East Dean, Charlton, Singleton and West Dean. Water will affect some basements, and be underneath ground floors. Small amounts of water will affect roads, including possibly the B2141 to Chilgrove. High pressure, settled weather, and almost no rain is forecast over the next week. An isolated shower could be possible, but will be very brief. Groundwater will continue to fall in all boreholes. However, because groundwater is not expected to fall fast, groundwater will remain close to the surface, and minor flood impacts affecting the sewage network could continue through to mid May. If you have pumps to help reduce groundwater levels in your property, ensure they are operational. We continue to monitor the levels and forecast. We will update this message by 18:00 23/04/2024
