Flood Resources

The Environment Agency provides realtime online data of the levels for the Lee (Lower) at Walthamstow, Low Hall. This appears to be monitoring the flood relief channel.

Real time data on other local river levels is available at the Environment Agency River Levels (London) website.

You can receive free text / email flood alerts by registering with the Environment Agency.

Waltham Forest Council provide flooding advice on their website but you can also contact them by phone – Civil Contingencies Joint Service 020 8496 3000

Rivers are the responsibility of the Environment Agency – 0845 933 3111 or 0845 988 1188

Lots of useful info in this National Flood Forum booklet (PDF).


The Flood Relief Channel that runs along the bottom of Elmfield was built to manage historic flooding events that have always tended to occur on the River Lea.
