Flood Update 11th February 2014

I have been round to see various people today and things seem quiet, but there is still a lot of water standing in peoples gardens.

Clearly there are some issues about the ability of the Cholsey Brook to handle the water flow when we have heavy rain and the ability of the sewage system to deal with large amounts of water. I have already spoken to the local Environment Agency and Thames water, with a view to taking these issues forward once the current incident is over.

I have asked the Environment Agency for a forecast of river levels later in the week as more heavy rain is due. Currently the levels have fallen significantly since Saturday, so hopefully there will be no repeat of what happened then.

If you would like more sandbags I understand SODC have some over at Benson Lane. Prior to going it might be a good idea to ring 823000, just to check.
