Bristol River Avon
River levels remain high but are beginning to fall at the Bathford river gauge as a result of persistent and heavy rainfall which passed through the area over the weekend as part of storm Dennis. Flooding continues. We believe there is a possibility of flooding for The Shallows and Mead Lane, Saltford. Flooding is also forecast to affect the Riverside Cottages area near Hanham and properties in Swineford and Keynsham if the river continues to rise. River levels are falling, but still pose a flood risk. We are closely monitoring the situation. Our incident response staff are checking defences. Please avoid contact with flood water. This message will be updated this evening, 17/02/20, or as the situation changes.
