Flooding is possible - be prepared

The flood alert for the Upper Derwent remains in force, with further rain and snow forecast for Saturday 16/01/2021. Consequently, there is continued risk of flooding of roads and farmland. Areas most at risk are low lying land and roads around Low Marishes. Our incident response staff are closely monitoring the forecast. See the GOV.UK website for a 5 day flood forecast and river levels. Please avoid using low lying footpaths near local watercourses, and plan driving routes to avoid low lying roads near rivers which may be flooded.
