River Blackwater

Warning no longer in force

The water level in the River Blackwater remains high, but it is now slowly falling. In the last 48 hours, close to half a month’s rain (43mm) was recorded in Romsey. For the rest of the day, the river will remain very high around the mill building and water will be ponded on low lying roads, land and fields, especially at West Wellow. Over the next few days, the weather is forecast to remain dry. It will take another 8 hours before the water level reduces significantly, and it will be several days before the river returns to normal. Given the more settled outlook, no further impacts are currently expected.
