Flood water left the river here - embankments kept the water on the road and ran down into West Auckland

West Auckland

The River Gaunless now has a storage dam in the headwaters that will certainly help downstream, but if the river blockages are allowed to develop because there is no heavy water to clear them the floods will occur with even less rainfall. If the dam overtops after 3 days of rain the river will have to cope. Please clear the A68 bridge.
