Lincoln Watercourses

Flood Alert

The heavy and persistent rainfall from the last two days has now passed over the area. No significant further rainfall is forecast for the next 24 hours. Watercourses in the area remain high, and will continue to flood nearby low lying land and roads over the next few days. We are monitoring river levels, and have staff in the field checking for blockages and clearing weedscreens. Please avoid using low lying footpaths near local watercourses and plan driving routes to avoid low lying roads near rivers, which may be flooded. This message will be updated on 17 October or as the situation changes.

This information last updated 5:10pm, Wednesday 16th October.
