for Flood alert in force now Nailbourne and Little Stour area

Flooding is possible - be prepared

The Nailbourne and Little Stour have been flowing since February. Groundwater levels have now peaked and so flows in the Nailbourne and Little Stour have stabilised. Some fords in Barham and Bridge are likely to remain closed for much of April. The Little Stour Flood Relief Channel is in partial operation at Littlebourne. Temporary defences operate in Barham. The internal flooding of residential properties at ground level is not expected. We are monitoring the situation continually and are coordinating efforts with local authorities and community leaders. Our incident response staff are attending weedscreens and culverts regularly. This Flood Alert is likely to remain in force until Friday 3 April when this message will be updated, or earlier if the situation changes.
