Somerset Levels flood meetings cancelled... due to flooding
Environment Agency flood meetings regarding the Somerset Levels and Moors have been cancelled due to further flooding.
The Curry Moor and North Moor flooding meeting scheduled for Wednesday, January 30 and the flood surgery that was to take place on Thursday, January 31 have both been postponed.
An update on the Environment Agency website said staff would not be available to attend the meetings due to flood warning duty and pumping operation commitments but the meetings would be held at a future date.
The water from the melting snow, followed by heavy rainfall across Somerset has worked its way into the rivers Tone, Parrett, Isle and Yeo, resulting in raised river levels. Some pumping operations have been suspended until the levels drop.

West Sedgemoor pumping station is not able to operate. No pumps are running at Curry Moor because the river levels are too high but pumps are operating at Saltmoor, Stanmoor, Westonzoyland and Northmoor. Pumping is heavily weather dependent.
Following the wettest summer on record the Somerset Levels and Moors have almost been continually under water since May 2012.
