River Roding and web cam

The gauge shows the level of the water in the river. We use this information and data provided by the Environment Agency to work out the risk of flooding.

  • 1m mark on the gauge - normal conditions
  • 5m - after moderate rainfall upstream
  • 7m and above - after heavy rainfall
  • 2m or higher – at these levels our Multi Agency Flood Plan ( link) will be activated at the appropriate level in consultation with the Environment Agency. The last time the river rose to this level was in February 2009.  

From time to time the camera could experience technical difficulties and may appear not to be working. The cameras can also move and point in different directions. If the camera isn't working as expected, we do apologise, our operators will be aware and working to fix any problems.

Flood wardens are local residents who check their neighbours are aware of the threat from river flooding. Flood wardens will get flood warning messages from the Environment Agency.

Flood wardens also:

  • offer advice to neighbours
  • are involved in public meetings about flooding issues 
  • identify and support vulnerable members of the community
  • provide feedback to us and the Environment Agency about local flooding issues 
  • provide vital information during flood events e.g. information on blocked culverts.
