Can you help improve flood warning data?

Groundwater Sept 2016

Following the groundwater flooding in 2013/2014 theEnvironment Agency has developed 22 community based groundwater flood warning areas across the following areas: Bourne Valley, River Till and Chitterne, Ebble, Vale of Allen, North Winterborne, Frome and Piddle, South Winterborne Valley.

The Agency is keen to extend the groundwater flood warning service to areas which currently do not benefit from the service. In this respect, they are appealing to the public for any historic reports, photos or local knowledge of issues. 

If you are able to provide them with any photos or other information please contact them at floodwessex@environment-agency.gov.uk
