Barlings Eau, Duckpool Catchwater
Following persistent heavy rainfall associated with Storm Dennis over the weekend, we are expecting river levels within the Barlings Eau catchment to remain elevated for the next 24hrs. The lower section near Low Barlings and Short Ferry is expected to remain high for the next few days. A further band of rain is forecast for Wednesday afternoon and evening. Please avoid using low lying footpaths and roads near local watercourses and rivers. We will continue to monitor river levels and will update this message on Wednesday 19th February or as the situation changes.


Flood Alert issued on 17 Feb 2020 18:41
Barlings Eau, Duckpool Catchwater
Over the weekend we have seen heavy rainfall in the Barlings Eau area as result of Storm Dennis. This means that river levels have risen which will lead to flooding of low lying land and roads close to the river. Currently we do not expect this to impact Short Ferry Road. We expect rivers to remain high throughout the next few days. Our forecasts indicate that flooding to properties isn't likely and therefore flood warnings are not expected to be issued at this time. The mobile pumps at Short Ferry may need to be turned off temporarily in order to reduce the impact on river levels. Please avoid using low lying footpaths near local watercourses and plan driving routes to avoid low lying roads near rivers, which may be flooded. We are constantly monitoring river levels, and have staff in the field checking for blockages and clearing weedscreens. This message will be updated during Tuesday 18th February, or as the situation changes.
