River Kennet and its tributaries from Berwick Bassett down to Newbury

Flood Alert

Property flooding is not currently expected. Water levels on the River Kennet upstream of Newbury have been high for several weeks and increased a little following heavy rain yesterday afternoon. After a largely dry day water levels have now stabilised. The weather forecast is for a mainly dry night with a chance of thunderstorms and heavy rain over the weekend. Levels are expected to remain high and may respond to further heavy showers. We expect water to remain above the top of the banks in the coming days. We are constantly monitoring river levels and our staff have been out in the area checking for blockages. Remain safe and be aware of your local surroundings, flood waters may be deep and fast flowing. Please refer to River and Sea levels in England for current levels.
