Latest news from the Environment Agency:
The flow through Monksleaze Clyce is being reduced and is now operating within ‘normal’ parameters. This will reduce flows through the Sowy and King Sedgemoor Drain system.
Due to improving conditions and the reduced flow through the Sowy, the large temporary pumps at Beer Wall (A372) near Aller are no longer needed and have now been removed. The A372 will remain closed after the pumps are removed so that Somerset County Council Highways can undertake an assessment of the flood damage caused and carry out emergency repair works to ensure the road is safe for users.
