Groundwater levels have risen at the Doles Ash borehole as a result of the recent heavy rainfall. The current level is recorded at 122.5 mAOD and is continuing to rise. The Met Office forecast over the next few days is for more rainfall, so we can expect groundwater levels to continue to rise. Flooding of roads and fields is possible. Residents may experience inundation of septic tanks and sewer systems. If you have a pump, please make sure it is working and switched on. You can monitor the groundwater level at Doles Ash borehole at www.flood-warning-information.service.gov.uk/river-and-sea-levels. We will continue to monitor the situation and update this message on Wednesday, 19/02/2020.
