Groundwater flooding for the Till

Flood Warning

The groundwater level in the Tilshead borehole now appears to have peaked at 99.6m AOD. We believe there still exists a possibility of flooding for Tilshead, Orcheston, Shrewton, Winterborne Stoke, Berwick Saint James and Stapleford. Residents remain advised to prepare property flood resilience measures and ensure that pumps are working where they have been installed. Flooding of roads and fields is possible. Residents may experience inundation of septic tanks and sewer systems. 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 We continue to monitor the groundwater situation carefully and will update this message on Saturday 22/02/2020 or as the situation requires.
