The groundwater level in the Woodyates borehole peaked yesterday 20/02/2020 at 106.8m AOD. It is currently at 106.7m AOD and falling. We believe there remains a possibility of flooding for Pentridge and Cranborne. Residents are continued to be advised to prepare property flood resilience measures and ensure that pumps are working where they have been installed. Unsettled conditions and moderate rainfall is forecast by the Met Office over this coming weekend and into Monday 24/02/20 therefore, we may see the rate of fall in groundwater levels slow or perhaps start to rise slowly again. Some borehole information can be found at https://flood-warning-information.service.gov.uk/river-and-sea-levels. We continue to monitor the groundwater situation carefully and will update this message on Saturday 22/02/2020 or as the situation requires.
