from Cookham Parish Council

Hopefully you have already seen that the River Thames from Hurley to Cookham has been on Flood Alert since Saturday 31st March. You may also have seen the flood boards near the Pound and on the High Street. "Flood Alert" means we should be prepared.  No property flooding is currently expected.

We are contacting you now because the river level upstream at Cookham Lock is at the height, 60cm, where we start to consider whether to open the Flood Hub.

Fiona Hewer and Carol Long have been monitoring the situation closely. We expect Cookham to remain on Flood Alert until Saturday, when the forecast suggests things will start to improve.  We do not expect the river levels to be high enough to close the B4447 Moor Road.

We do not expect to have to open the Cookham Flood Hub, but we will continue to monitor the situation closely.

The River Thames has fallen slowly since the last Cookham Flood News but remains high at 55cm.  The EA still has Hurley to Cookham on Flood Alert, and expects river levels to remain high for a few days. Some rain showers are forecast in the catchment as we move into Saturday afternoon.

We will continue to monitor the situation closely but it looks like a slowly improving situation.

The EA lifted the Flood Alert on the River Thames from Hurley to Cookham yesterday evening.  The river level at Cookham has fallen to 17cm.

Therefore we close this flood event.
