Flood Warning issued on 9 Apr 2018 14:10
The sustained rise in groundwater level measured at Delcombe Wood borehole levelled off slightly overnight. However today's rainfall and more expected tomorrow means that levels will, inevitably start to rise again towards the middle of this week. The road is flooded just upstream of the village hall in West Street in Winterbourne Stickland and the bow wave from vehicles is causing problems for cottages adjacent to the road. Properties between the mill stream and the road are at particular risk and should take immediate action to implement their flood plans and install property resilience measures. Elsewhere in the North Winterbourne valley, residents are advised to prepare protection measures and take particular care when driving, both for their own safety and to prevent flooding to others.
