The latest Environment Agency Drought update briefing can be found here. Following a very dry February the area has benefitted from well above average rainfall in March. This has resulted in an extended groundwater recharge season and has improved conditions in some catchments, although the Cam and Ely Ouse catchment remains in drought status. More information can be found at www.gov.uk/government/organisations/environment-agency.
These slides from the Environment Agency’s latest drought update show how dry February was (the driest in East Anglia since 1959) and, by contrast how wet March was, but despite the March rainfall we remain in drought.
