Correspondence received from Environment Agency –
“Until recently, the Flood Alert for the River Leadon catchment was issued based on expected levels at the Wedderburn Bridge gauge, which is downstream from Bosbury at Upleadon. Based on feedback from the community, we have now added the Bosbury river gauge as a Flood Alert trigger. This means we will now issue the River Leadon Flood Alert based on flooding at both the Bosbury and Weddderburn Bridge gauges, along with the Bromsberrow gauge on the Glynch Brook.
A Flood Alert is issued when flooding is possible, and generally indicates the potential for the flooding of low lying land and roads.
I trust you will find this much more relevant to the local community, and it should mean that the Flood Alert is received in a much more timely manner in Bosbury from now on.”
