River Cole and Dorcan Brook

Flood alert

Property flooding is not currently expected. River levels have generally peaked on the River Cole following Storm Christoph. Therefore, flooding of low-lying land, footpaths and roads is expected to continue, especially in the areas around Coleshill, Watchfield and Shrivenham. Levels on the Dorcan Brook have not reached the flood risk threshold. Overnight tonight and tomorrow (22/01/21) are expected to remain dry for most places. River levels have peaked and will begin dropping from this evening (21/01/21), with no further rise forecast. 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 avoid contact with flood water. This message will be updated tomorrow morning, 22/01/21, or as the situation changes.
