Carlisle Floods

Sunday 6 December 2015

As you will undoubtedly know, Carlisle and Cumbria have experienced exceptional rainfall in the past 24 to 48 hour adding yet more water to our already full catchments. The river Caldew reached the same levels as when we flooded in 2012.

 

With that said, our forward planning and major investment in flood defences has paid dividends. Whilst the river came up and surely would have flooded us as it did in 2012, the flood defences held firm and the factory is dry and without any disruption.

Thank you to all those employees who gave up their time to help man the pumps.
