Groundwater flooding for the Iwerne

Flood warning

The groundwater level at the Iwerne Hill borehole has risen to 112.114m above sea level and will continue to rise until the beginning of next week.
Up to 20mm of rainfall is forecast over the next 48 hours which will keep levels very high for some days.

Property flooding is expected and sewage systems may become inundated.

Residents should deploy any property resilience measures such as pumps, flood barriers and air brick covers now.
Avoid driving through flood water as the bow wave from vehicles can flood adjacent properties.

Do not lift manhole covers to alleviate local surface water flooding as this may cause toilets further downhill to surcharge.
This message will be updated on Sunday 25th February, or as the situation changes
