Hydrological Outlook from May 2015

The latest Hydrological Outlook is available!

Normal groundwater levels were widespread across the Chalk in April, but with below-normal levels in north-east England and Wessex contrasting with above-normal levels at a few boreholes in the south-east. Groundwater levels were variable in other aquifers, with above-normal levels in parts of the Permo-Triassic sandstone. 

With evapotranspiration increasing and seasonal recessions generally well established, the outlook for both one and three months is for a broadly similar situation to persist. Levels in most aquifers are likely to be normal or below, with above-normal levels largely confined to some central and northern parts of the Permo-Triassic sandstone aquifer. Below normal levels are likely over the next three months in western and north-east England, with the possibility of notably low levels in some localities.
