A very well attended meeting at Aller Village Hall last night heard Peter Maltby, chair of the Inland Drainage Board and one of our local farmers, clarify the situation of flooding and water management affecting the area. Peter outlined the present situation, which is likely to persist for some time before things return completely to normal, and also spoke of some of the medium and long term measures that may take place once water levels subside. The concensus is that the measures being adopted will ensure that the situation in the village does not deteriorate, but it may be some days before we see the benefit of the pumps now being put in place.
The latest situation update from EA is here.
A more detailed update on the pumping strategy, supporting the discussion at the village hall, is also provided here.
