Water levels in the Bartley water remain very high but they are now falling. In the last 24 hours more than 41mm of rain has fallen in Testwood, which is more than half a month’s rainfall. Currently there is extensive out of bank flooding affecting land, fields and roads through Ashurst. Road flooding is expected at Totton and Rumbridge. At Woodlands, the river may still be affecting property and a Flood Warning remains in force. Rain should clear the area by 17:00 (16/02/2020) but the river will remain very high over the next 12 hours. Tomorrow (Monday 17/02/2020), smaller amounts of rain are forecast. Any rainfall tomorrow will be enough to cause further small increases in water level, but should not flood property. We continue to monitor the forecast. If you have installed flood protection, please leave it in place over the next 12 hours. This message will be updated by 12:00 on 17 February 2020.
