Upper River Derwent, Stonethwaite Beck and Derwent Water - Flooding is possible

SHARE:

The Environment Agency say that flooding is possible at Derwent Water. The lake level has risen at the Lodore gauge as a result of today’s heavy rainfall.

A spokesperson said: "Flooding is expected to affect low lying land and roads in the Seatoller, Stonethwaite, Rosthwaite, Grange-in-Borrowdale and Derwent Water shoreline areas.

"High river and lake levels are possible on the River Derwent, Stonethwaite Beck, Watendlath Beck, Derwent Water and their tributaries. The lake level has risen in response to persistent rainfall overnight and this morning. The heaviest of the rain will soon have passed over the catchment, and only light rainfall is forecast over the next 6 hours.

"We forecast that the level of the lake at Lodore will peak at 1.5m at approximately 19:30hrs this evening, 27/07/2020. We are closely monitoring the situation."
