Tributaries of the lower River Witham from Blankney to Sleaford

Flood alert

We have seen heavy rainfall today Thursday 22nd February in the Lower River Witham catchment from Blankney to Sleaford, leading to flooding of low-lying land and roads close to the rivers. We expect rivers to remain high and flooding to gardens, driveways or outhouses is possible close to the rivers. Our forecasts indicate that flooding inside properties isn't likely and therefore flood warnings are not expected to be issued. We are constantly monitoring river levels and have staff in the field checking for blockages and clearing weedscreens. Please avoid using low lying footpaths near local watercourses and plan driving routes to avoid low lying roads near rivers, which may be flooded. This message will be updated online and on FloodLine by 17:00 on 23/02/2024, or before if the situation changes.
