Flood Alert issued on 21 Oct 2021 12:33
Danes Stream
The water level in the Danes Stream remains very high. In the last 24 hours, more than half a month’s rain (50 mm) has been recorded at Stem Lane. Milford Dam has operated correctly to reduce the amount of water flowing to Milford on Sea. However, the water level in the village is very high and some footpath flooding is occurring. Gardens at Milford on Sea High Street, may also be affected. It is currently high tide at Lymington, which will act to reduce the river’s capacity to drain to the sea until at least 14:00 this afternoon (21/10/21). Over the next few days, the weather will remain dry. Following high tide this afternoon, the level in the river should reduce, and no further impacts are expected. We continue to monitor the forecast. We have checked Milford Dam is operating. Until later on this afternoon, please keep away from the riverside footpaths in Milford on Sea, especially at Milford Bridge, opposite Lucerne Road. If footpaths are flooded, it will be difficult to see where the edge of the main river channel is. This message will be removed by 18:00 on 21/10/21.
