Groundwater levels in the Lavant valley are still high. In the last week of February only 2mm of rain was measured, and groundwater levels in the villages of the upper Lavant valley are slowly falling - by about 3 to 5 centimetres each day. Groundwater infiltration will continue to affect the sewerage network for a while yet. Water may still flow through fields and on roads and be high enough to cause cellar flooding, or be close to floorboards in a few properties in East Dean, Charlton, Singleton and West Dean. Another dry week is forecast, with showers (less than 10mm) on Wednesday and Thursday. Groundwater will continue to fall slowly, with minor impacts remaining through March. Next week (from 8/3/2021) might see spells of rain, but probably not enough to raise groundwater levels. If you have pumps to help reduce groundwater levels in your property, please check they are working. We continue to monitor the levels and forecast. We will update this message by 17:00 8/3/2021
