River levels have risen at the Lovington river gauge as a result of heavy rainfall last night. Consequently, flooding of property is forecast this afternoon from 12:30 p.m. onwards. We expect flooding to affect roads and property in Catsham, Cowbridge and West Lydford and the B3151 Glastonbury to Meare road. Properties on Dyehouse Lane, Glastonbury are at risk from the Glastonbury Millstream, and overtopping is forecast for the river at Baltonsborough. We expect river levels to remain high throughout Saturday and we are closely monitoring the situation. Our incident response staff are out clearing weed screens and checking flood defences. Please plan driving routes to avoid low lying roads near rivers which may be flooded, and avoid contact with flood water. This message will be updated on Sunday 01/03/2020, or as the situation changes.
