Lower Welland

Flood alert

Over the last 24 hours we have seen heavy rainfall in the Lower River Welland area. This means that the River Welland is now rising, which will lead to flooding of low lying land and roads close to the river from this evening on Friday, 16th January 2021 onwards. We expect the river to remain high throughout the next few days. Our forecasts indicate that flooding to properties isn't likely and therefore flood warnings are not expected to be issued. Please avoid using low lying footpaths near local watercourses and plan driving routes to avoid low lying roads near rivers, which may be flooded. We are constantly monitoring river levels, and have staff in the field checking for blockages and clearing weedscreens. This message will be updated by tomorrow, Saturday 16th January 2021, or as the situation changes.
