GROUNDWATER LEVEL Farringdon Borehole 16th April (3pm)  116.91m AOD

(116/17)  Lower Farringdon has water in gardens / playing field / cellars / coming out of manhole/drain onto A32) 


FLOOD ALERT FOR GROUNDWATER FLOODING  - In response to recent rainfall, groundwater levels have risen above the level at which groundwater flooding may affect communities and a groundwater flood alert has been issued determined from the Farringdon borehole in the Alton, Chawton and Lower Farringdon areas. The groundwater level is higher than normal at this location and is currently stabilised at this high level. The catchment remains sensitive to rainfall due to saturated ground and levels may start to increase again as we receive further rainfall. A groundwater flood alert was issued on 09 January 2024 for the areas at risk of groundwater flooding in Alton, Chawton and Lower Farringdon and this will remain in force. We will continue to monitor the situation closely and provide an update as this changes. (From the Environment Agency 16/4/24)
