for Flood alert in force now Groundwater flooding in Bury St Edmunds

Flooding is possible - be prepared

Groundwater levels at our Thomas Bole Close Borehole remain high, but are starting to gradually decline. The risk of groundwater flooding remains. We expect flooding to affect areas of Bury St Edmunds at risk of groundwater flooding, including Eastgate Street, Barn Lane and parts of Vinefields. The weather forecast indicates very little rain over the next few days. As such we expect the gradual decline of groundwater levels to continue. We are closely monitoring the situation. Please avoid contact with flood water. This message will be updated Wednesday 3 March, or as the situation changes.
