Groundwater flooding in West Ilsley, East Ilsley, Compton, Chilton and West Hagbourne

Flood alert

Groundwater levels are high and slowly rising following recent rainfall across the area at our Hodcott observation borehole near West Ilsley. Groundwater levels are higher than normal for this time of year and are at a level where communities may now be affected by flooding from groundwater. The catchment remains sensitive to rainfall due to saturated ground and high groundwater levels. Low-lying land, gardens, roads, and cellars 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 on 01/03/2024, or as the situation changes.
