for Flood alert in force now Groundwater flooding in the High Wycombe area

Flooding is possible - be prepared

Groundwater levels have responded to rainfall during February and the start of March and have risen at our observation borehole in Piddington in the Radnage Community and Hughendon Valley area. Groundwater levels are above normal for this time of year and have now reached a level where communities may be affected within the next few weeks by flooding from groundwater. We expect levels to continue to rise slowly over the next few days and weeks. Low-lying land and roads will therefore be at risk of flooding. Due to the nature of groundwater behaviour, this situation could continue for several weeks or longer. We are continuing to monitor groundwater levels and will update this message next week by 8 April 2020, or as the situation changes.
