Surface water run off

Nick Claxton of LDC is gathering information on surface water sources throughout the town. He wants to map all springs, streams etc that appear at times of heavy rainfall. They are arranging a drop in session at Southover House on Tuesday 25 Jan 3-7pm Southover House. Please spread the word. All you have to do is turn up and give Nick whatever information you have at any time during this session. It shouldn?t take more than a few minutes.

Strange that LDC don't realise people work during the day - I wonder how they think we pay our council tax?

I've now tracked down Nick Claxton. He is from ESCC and not LDC. The drop in session at Southover House is from 3.30 (not 3pm). Sorry for the misinformation. Nick says: "We are in the process of assembling information on the occurrence of local flooding (such as surface water, ground water and minor water course flooding) to assist us in developing a county wide preliminary flood risk assessment and to inform the development of a local flood risk strategy which we hope to publish in draft form in 2012." The survey is wider than Lewes town, but the Lewes information will also assist LDC's inquiry into run off from the surrounding hills. Since the authorities are at last taking 'local knowledge' about what actually happens seriously, I would urge anyone who knows where springs, minor water courses and surface water run at times of extreme rainfall to drop in tomorrow. If you can't make it, go to hxxp:// and you can enter your info there.
