An update on river levels in Malton and Norton has been given to residents in Malton and Norton.
North Yorkshire councillor Keane Duncan says the river has peaked in Malton, however, it is a slow responding river so won’t have much time to go down before further rainfall this week.
Currently (Tuesday 31 October) , there is no risk to properties or roads being flooded, however partners will continue to monitor the effects as further rain has fallen.
The multi-agency pump plan was activated over the weekend. By yesterday (Monday 30th) 9 pumps were deployed and operational.
There are still 9 operational today (Tuesday 31st), with two more being brought into the area today.
Pumps are located in Old Malton (Lascelles Lane and The Cut), in Malton (Tate Smiths, Boat Yard, Taylor Brown Yard) and Norton (Church Street).
Groundwater levels are beginning to rise and the Environment Agency are monitoring to see what effects this may have on the response and pumping.
