Flood Alert for Bourn Brook at Comberton
This message has been issued by the Environment Agency due to the heavy rain experienced over the last 24 hours. It was issued at 9am on 30th December.
This means that the water levels in the Bourn Brook are high. The forecast is for light rain over the next few days. We are expecting there to be no property flooding as a result of high river levels, but there could be some issues caused by surface water flooding. Locations most at risk are Bourn Brook from Toft to Comberton. The Environment Agency are monitoring river levels and have staff in the field checking for and clearing blockages.
Current River Level: 1.188m, rising
Above normal for this location
Current level recorded at 4:30am, Saturday 30th December GMT

This is measured at the bridge over the Bourne Brook south of Comberton. (The measuring station in Bourne itself is now virtual static, but showing three times higher than normal.)
The Village Pond is already full due to snow melt on the fields along Green End and Branch Road…. Be prepared for South Street to flood at the Causeway…. Check alongside Barton Road…..
