Flooding is expected - immediate action required
The groundwater level in the Dickley Down borehole peaked at 168.6m AOD. It is currently at 163.9m AOD and falling steadily. We believe a possibility of flooding still exists for the Devils Brook including Ansty, Cheselbourne and Dewlish. Residents are still advised to ensure property resilience measures remain in place and that pumps are working where they have been installed. Residents may experience problems flushing toilets and have issues with septic tanks. Further unsettled conditions and moderate rainfall is forecast by the Met Office throughout this week to Friday 28/02/20 so we may expect levels in the borehole to start to rise slowly again. Some borehole information can be found at https://flood-warning-information.service.gov.uk/river-and-sea-levels. We continue to monitor the groundwater situation carefully and will update this message on Wednesday 26/02/2020 or as the situation requires.
