Heavy rain has fallen on the River Witham catchment over the past several days. No further rainfall is forecast for today, Sunday 17th January. We still expect properties along the River Witham and associated Fens from Chapel Hill to Boston to be affected. Low lying properties near the river are most at risk. Levels will remain high for a few days. Stay safe and be aware of your local surroundings. Avoid contact with flood water, riverside paths and river embankments. Our staff are out in the area to check the flood defences, clear blockages, operate our assets and assist the Emergency Services and Council. We are closely monitoring the situation. This message will be updated on Monday 18th January, or as the situation changes.
