Lower River Aire catchment

Flood alert

The rainfall associated with Storm Christoph has now passed, however river levels across the lower Aire catchment will remain high overnight and into tomorrow (Saturday 23/01/2021). Areas most at risk are low-lying land, roads and farmland. The lower Aire washlands continue to fill and we are closely monitoring the situation, though we do not expect to issue further warnings. Our field teams have been checking defences and clearing screens and we are liaising closely with our partners to ensure they are ready to respond. Avoid using low-lying footpaths near watercourses and plan driving routes to avoid roads which may be flooded. This message will be updated by 09:00, 23/01/2021, or as the situation changes.
