for Flood alert in force now Groundwater flooding in villages surrounding Andover

Flooding is possible - be prepared

Groundwater levels are high and rising. From 13/02/2020 to 17/02/2020, 71mm of rain was recorded at Andover. Today, levels are high enough to cause the spring at Biddesden to flow. This spring flow will impact the sewage system. Cellar flooding is expected in Appleshaw and Hatherden. In the next few days there will be groundwater emergence into Deacon and Down Road, Kimpton, and road and cellar flooding in Penton Mewsey. The sewage networks may be affected in all the villages. Over the next 5 days, small amounts of rain are forecast each day (except on Friday 21/02/2020, which should remain dry). The groundwater level will continue to rise for at least the next 12 days. We continue to monitor the forecast. If you use pumps to help reduce water levels, please ensure they can operate. This Flood Alert will be updated by Tuesday 25/02/2020.
