The detention pond is full again – Updated

Excessive rain has again filled the detention pond off Red Road in Lightwater. That’s the third time in recent months. Prior to this autumn the pond was last full in the summer of 2007. So, this autumn has been particularly wet. To my knowledge, not exhaustive I grant you, there’s been no flooding in Lightwater, since 2007, which is due to the investment in flood alleviation measures. NB: amended – in red – to make my note clearer,

Here’s my photo, taken this afternoon, of the detention pond adjacent to Red Road. I know it rained heavily last night because I was caught out iin it without a trusty umbrella.

  1. I take it you mean there has been no flooding in Lightwater this year, because there most certainly was on 13th August 2006!
    Let’s hope the measures put in place then have not been neglected since!!

  2. Thanks Fiona, perhaps I need to amend my blog post to say that there’s been no flooding since 2007. I hope reader’s will know of my campaigns and work to reduce flooding in Lightwater
