Groundwater levels remain high at our Draycot Foliat observation borehole in the Upper Og Valley groundwater alert area. Groundwater levels responded to rainfall from Storm Dennis and local communities may have experienced groundwater flooding over the last few days. However, levels have started to drop at the observation borehole again now. We expect levels to remain high over the next few weeks in response to any further rainfall across the area. Low-lying land and roads will continue to be at risk of flooding. Due to the nature of groundwater behaviour, this situation could continue for several weeks or longer and the speed at which flooding will occur will be dependent on rainfall conditions. Further rainfall is forecast this week. We are continuing to monitor groundwater levels and will update this message next week by 26 February 2020, or as the situation changes.
