River Cole and Dorcan Brook

Flood Alert

Property flooding is not currently expected. River levels have risen on the River Cole and Dorcan Brook as a result of heavy rainfall over the last 24 hours. Therefore, flooding of footpaths, roads and low-lying land is expected this morning (29/02/20), especially in the Coleshill area on the River Cole. Levels on the Dorcan Brook are now dropping. The forecast is for persistent rain to clear this morning leaving showers through today (29/02/20) and overnight. We expect river levels to stabilise this afternoon before dropping. We are closely monitoring the situation. Our incident response staff are in the area clearing weed/trash screens. Please remain safe and aware of your local surroundings and refer to the 'River and Sea levels in England' webpage for current river levels. This message will be updated this evening, 29/02/20, or as the situation changes.
