Latest information on the drought situation

Sunshine and showers continued to dominate the weather over the past week. Many regions have now received more than their average June rainfall. Central and eastern England have had 75 and 83 per cent (respectively) of their average monthly rainfall.


Lincolnshire, Cambridgeshire, parts of Bedfordshire and Northamptonshire and western Norfolk remain in drought.


Many rivers have responded to the rainfall but there are still a number that have below normal flows for the time of year including: the rivers Dove and Derwent in central England, Ely Ouse in east Anglia, Malmesbury Avon in south west England and the Kennet and Coln in the Thames Valley.


The recent rain has brought some relief to farmers in Kent. The Environment Agency has put on hold the formal Section 57 notices issued to farmers operating in Walland and Romney Marsh in Kent stating they would have to cease abstractions from 20 June.


Most water companies have indicated that restrictions to the public water supply are unlikely this year.
Trevor Bishop, Head of Water Resources at the Environment Agency, said:

“The wetter weather has helped to lessen impacts on the environment this week. However, after months of little rain, the recent unsettled weather does not mean the drought or risk of drought is over.

“Without further sustained rainfall, river flows will quickly drop again and our teams remain on alert to respond to the environmental impacts of drought.

“The Environment Agency is working with farmers and other abstractors to identify ways of making the water that is available go further. Our role is to balance the water needs of people, businesses and the environment and it’s important that we all use water wisely at all times of the year, especially during dry periods.”

Drought management update

01-Jul-2011


Latest information on the drought situation

* Unsettled weather has dominated June with a mixture of sunshine and showers. Most of England and Wales have now received average or above average rainfall for June.

* However, due to the prolonged dry weather prior to recent rainfall, Lincolnshire, Cambridgeshire, parts of Bedfordshire and Northamptonshire and western Norfolk remain in drought.

* Some rivers have responded to the rainfall in June and are now normal or above normal. There are still a number that have below normal flows for the time of year including: the rivers Tone, Frome, Hampshire Avon and Malmesbury Avon, in south west England the rivers Dove, Derwent and Trent in central England and the Kennet and Coln in the Thames Valley.

* The hot weather at the start of the week put added pressure on the environment. The Environment Agency rescued hundreds of fish from the Upper River Slea which was experiencing low water levels as a result of the drought. An area of the Upper Slea close to the South Kyme is also being closely monitored so action can be taken immediately if dissolved oxygen levels drop.

* Further rain over the past week has continued to help farmers. Increased river flows have meant some farmers are now able to abstract water again. Previously they could not due to conditions on their licence. Voluntary restrictions are still in place for around 180 farmers on the Cambridgeshire Fens.

* Boaters on parts of the Leeds-Liverpool Canal still face restrictions due to low reservoir levels. Restrictions due to the dry weather on the Rochdale Canal have been lifted, although existing restrictions due to other reasons remain.

* Most water companies have indicated that restrictions to the public water supply are unlikely this year.

Drought and risk of drought not over

Trevor Bishop, Head of Water Resources at the Environment Agency, said:

“The recent rain and unsettled weather has certainly helped the environment, farmers and water companies but does not mean the drought or risk of drought is over.”

“The Environment Agency, water companies and other water users such as farmers and industry have developed plans to cope with hot dry spells, however more dry weather in July will add further pressure on water resources. Without sustained rainfall over the next few weeks, we may see drought conditions spreading into central England and further east.

“It’s the Environment Agency’s role is to balance the water needs of people, businesses and the environment and it’s important that we all use water wisely at all times of the year, especially during dry periods.”
