Over the last 24 hours we have seen heavy rainfall in the Welland tributaries catchment. This means that the Welland tributaries are now rising, which will lead to flooding of low lying land and roads close to the river from the afternoon on Thursday 14th of November onwards. We expect the river to remain high throughout the next few days. Our forecasts indicate that flooding to properties isn't likely however it remains a possibility. Flood warnings are not expected to be issued at this time. We are constantly monitoring river levels, and have staff in the field checking for blockages and clearing weedscreens.
