for Flood warning in force now Groundwater flooding for the Sydling

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 there exists a possibility of flooding for Up Sydling and Sydling Saint Nicholas. Residents continue to be advised to prepare property flood resilience measures and ensure that pumps are working where they have been installed. Residents may experience problems flushing toilets and have issues with septic tanks. Unsettled conditions and moderate rainfall is forecast by the Met Office over this coming week with periods of sunny spells therefore, we may levels in the Dickley Down borehole start to rise slowly again. Some borehole information can be found at We continue to monitor the groundwater situation carefully and will update this message on Monday 24/02/2020 or as the situation requires.
