River Witham and associated Fens from Washingborough to Metheringham

Flood Warning

River levels will remain high in the River Witham while we use the Lincoln Washlands to make space for further rainfall forecast on Tuesday, 12th November. Rainfall over the last few days has resulted in the flooding of low lying land and roads in the lower reaches of the Witham and its tributaries. Low lying properties near the river most at risk. Stay safe and be aware of your local surroundings. Please avoid contact with flood water. We have staff out in the area and are closely monitoring the situation. This message will be updated on Tuesday 12th November or as the situation changes.

This information last updated 7:49pm, Monday 11th November.
