Coronavirus (COVID-19): how we're protecting our flood warning service

for Flood warning in force now River Mersey at Cheadle Wood and Ford lane

Flooding is expected - immediate action required

River levels are rising at the Didsbury river gauge as a result of persistent heavy rainfall associated with Storm Christoph. Consequently, flooding to properties is expected. We believe there is a possibility of flooding for land and property close to the River Mersey at Didsbury Golf Course and Cheadle Wood. Further rainfall is forecast over the next 48 hours and we expect river levels to remain high until Friday. Our incident response staff are closely monitoring weather forecasts and river levels and will issue further flood warnings if necessary. We are currently operating Didsbury and Sale flood storage basins. Please avoid using low lying footpaths near local watercourses, be aware of your surroundings and keep up to date with the current situation. This message will be updated tomorrow, Thursday 21st January or as the situation changes.
