River Aire
West Marsh and Hirst Courtney washland levels have continued to slowly fall, therefore movement of water towards Temple Hirst from the washlands has eased. As levels remain high, the risk to properties in and around Temple Hirst remains. Flooding continues to affect roads in the area. Last night’s rain did not cause further water to enter washlands from the Aire. Scattered showers are forecast for the next few days, however we do not expect significant river level impacts. River levels should continue to fall, meaning that washlands will continue to drain. High tides will slow this process, but are falling so should not make river levels rise significantly. River and washland levels will remain elevated into next week. Our staff are pumping at Hirst Courtney to help remove floodwater. For support please call Selby District Council, 01757 705101. To report property flooding call 0800 80 70 60. We will update this message by 18:50 on 01/03/20 or if the situation changes.
