More flooding problems

 

I have beent old there are flooding problems in the Burghfield Bridge area, and this is causing knock on problems with septic tanks. I am asking the Environment Agency to assist.

The Environment Agency has issued the following update for the River Kennet which is affecting Burghfield, Theale and its local environs:

“The river and flooding forecast is as follows: The River Kennet remains very high between Theale and Reading and the river is still out in the floodplain. River levels have been dropping but will rise again in response to the rainfall today. Further flooding of some low lying properties closest to the river is still possible. The weather forecast is to expect showers to spread across the area through the afternoon, some of these will be heavy. More heavy showers are expected overnight and through Tuesday.”
