December 1st 2018 marks the start of our 6th year of flood monitoring within Winterbourne Stoke and it will be the third year this information will appear here on the village website. As we gather more and more data, the harder it is to capture it all in a useful form, so we have made a few minor cosmetic changes to the graph to facilitate this. The first proper graph of the season will appear on the “Notices” page of this website on, or shortly after, Friday 7th December and will look like this:
The different coloured traces should be faily self-explanatory with the red trace being the current year, purple being the 6-year average. The black trace represents the last year we had groundwater flooding in the village and the green trace shows a year with little winter rain and a late Spring. Current borehole levels are around 79 metres, well below average, but rising.
