Groundwater flooding for the Hooke

Flood Warning

The groundwater levels in the Dickley Down borehole peaked at 168.6mAOD. They are currently at 166.4 mAOD and falling steadily. We believe there remains a possibility of flooding for Toller Whelme, Hooke, Higher Kingcombe, Lower Kingcombe and Toller Porcorum. Residents are continued to be advised to prepare property flood resilience measures and ensure that pumps are working where they have been installed. Residents may experience problems flushing toilets and have issues with septic tanks. The Met Office forecast over the next few days is for continuing unsettled conditions, so we may expect the reduction in groundwater levels to slow or start to rise again as further rainfall is forecast. Some borehole information can be found at https://flood-warning-information.service.gov.uk/river-and-sea-levels. We will continue to monitor the situation and update this message on Friday, 21/02/2020.
