North Swaith Dike at Bentley

Flood Warning

Water levels in North Swaith Dike continue to fall. However, on 14 November we are expecting a band of rain to move across South Yorkshire. This may be locally heavy, and given the wet ground conditions, we expect some response from the main River Don which will slow the drainage out of North Swaith Dike. We are closely monitoring the forecast. Our incident response staff have deployed people, equipment and pumps. We are pumping in several locations back into the River Don to bring down water levels. We are supporting the coordinated multi‐agency response in the area and our incident room is open. Please avoid contact with floodwater and plan journeys to avoid low-lying roads. See GOV.UK for a 5 day flood forecast. To report any flood impacts please call 0800 80 70 60. This message will be updated by 10:45 on 14/11/19, or as the situation changes.

This information last updated 2:49am, Thursday 14th November.
