Flood Protection and Management
This page will be added to by Bampton's flood protection group.
One important link for those living in the flood prone area near the river bridge is the Environment Agency automatic monitoring of the River Batherm - you can see immediately the state of the river - here.
The image on the right shows the river level at the end of November 2012 when minor flooding occurred.
More general information on flooding can be found at Environment Agency Flood website.
The floodline number is: 0845 988 1188
You can arrange to have flood warnings for your area sent automatically by phone, mobile, text, or email.
A list of resources for flood protection schemes is the National Flood Forum 'Blue Pages' - download a copy here.
