Flood Warning 062FAGFlamstdGW

Groundwater flooding in Flamstead

Warning added: 17:24, 14th April 2021

no adsremove ads

Groundwater levels have responded to autumn and winter rainfall and have risen to very high levels at our observation borehole at River Hill, close to Flamstead.
Groundwater levels are unusually high for this time of year and have reached a level where communities are at risk of being affected by flooding from groundwater.
Although levels have declined slightly since the peak in February, we expect levels to remain high and low lying land and roads such as those in the Trowley Bottom area near Flamstead remain at risk of flooding.
Due to the nature of groundwater behaviour this situation could continue for several weeks or longer. We are continuing to monitor groundwater levels and will update this message 21 April or as the situation changes.
