Minor Watercourses in North Kesteven

Flood alert

Over the last week we saw heavy rainfall across the North Kesteven area and further rainfall is forecast over the next few days. This means river levels are remaining high and has already led to flooding of low lying land and roads close to rivers. We expect rivers to remain high throughout today, Tuesday 19th January, and for the next few days. Our forecasts indicate that flooding to properties is not 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 trash screens. This message will be updated on Wednesday 20th January, or as the situation changes.
