Latest Information:

  • Groundwater levels in West and East Ilsley and Compton remain high, but are expected to start slowly falling within the next week. Levels may remain sensitive to any further rainfall. In some locations groundwater has surfaced and some flooding has occured. Further flooding could still occur and property flooding is also possible in places. Due to the nature of groundwater behaviour, this situation could continue for several weeks, or longer, and impacts are expected to be similar to the flooding during the winter of 2000 and 2001. This message will be updated on Wednesday 16 April 2014.
