    January 2016 update

    Above average rain fell in January: a total of 124mm was received, which is 140% of the rain we would expect in the month. Over the last 12 months, we have received 842mm of rainfall, which is average.

    At the end of January, total reservoir storage stood at 100% of total capacity. Pumped storage (where we pump water from rivers to top up storage in surface reservoirs) is not currently operating at any of our reservoirs.

    The average temperature in January was 8.6°C, which is warmer than average.

    River flows are monitored on a daily basis to ensure stream supports are switched on as the appropriate flows are reached. River flows in January increased and as a result stream support is currently only running at Watergates, Dorset.
