Flood Warning issued on 17 Feb 2020 08:53
River Arun
River levels are still high on the Arun, but are now beginning to fall, after Storm Dennis's widespread heavy rain. Flood impacts will continue to affect fields, gardens, roads and isolated properties close to Swan Bridge, the A29 and close to Carpenters Meadow and Swan View. Please continue to take care in and around flood affected areas, flood water can contain hidden dangers. Rain has now cleared, and only isolated showers are expected until Thursday 20/2/2020. These showers are unlikely to cause river levels to rise, but river levels will not fall significantly until later in the week. Plan to avoid driving through routes vulnerable to flooding such as the A29 through Pulborough. Our pumps in Pulborough are running to help reduce the risk of flooding. We will update this message by 11:00 18/2/2020.
