River levels have risen on the River Witham in North Kesteven as a result of persistent heavy rainfall associated with Storm Dennis affecting the county. This has led to flooding of low lying land and roads close to the river today, Sunday 16th February. We expect the river to remain high throughout the next few days. We are monitoring the situation in the area incident room and will update this message and issue further alerts and warnings as required. Please avoid using low lying footpaths near local watercourses and plan driving routes to avoid low lying roads near rivers, which may be flooded. We are constantly monitoring river levels, and have staff in the field checking for blockages and clearing weedscreens. This message will be updated on Monday the 17th February or as the situation changes.
