The weather forecast is predicted to remain dry for the next five days. High pressure could remain into April too, but perhaps with a greater chance of light (and normal) spring showers. Groundwater levels are falling and will continue to fall with the predominantly dry weather. In the communities, groundwater is falling slowly – by about 3 centimetres a day, but levels have already fallen by 40cm from their peak this winter and are a similar distance below the surface. Higher up the valleys – at our boreholes in Chilgrove and near Cocking – groundwater is falling at a quicker rate, approximately 40cm each day. Groundwater levels are now at a level similar to Christmas. It will still take weeks until groundwater levels are more normal, but evidence of groundwater flood impacts are becoming less obvious. Sewerage infiltration will continue to reduce. We will continue to monitor the weather forecast. We will update this message by 17:00 03/04/2020.
