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.
