Kirkconnel now benefits from a SEPA Flood Warning Area for the River Nith, providing Flood Warnings for over 127 properties and many more who work in or travel through the area.
If you do live, work or travel through this area regularly, you can register for free Flood Warnings, which will be sent straight to your phone when flooding is forecast.
About the area:
Kirkconnel flooded in December 2013 causing flooding to approximately 50 properties.
This represented the first major flood to the town since 1966. Working in partnership with Dumfries and Galloway Council, it was agreed that the flood warning service be developed to include Kirkconnel.
More about the service:
A Flood Warning will be issued when flooding is expected for the area highlighted in red. It will give you time to prepare for flooding and reduce the damage and disruption to your life or business.
If you receive a message you should check out the live flood updates or call Floodline on 0345 988 1188 to find out more about the current flooding situation.
