Water Situation Report 2018

We measure, monitor and report on a range of hydrological parameters to assess the water situation report across Wales

We do this by using our own hydrometric data, together with data provided by the Met Office and water companies. We produce a monthly water situation report by the 15th of each month. It includes, for the previous month:

  • the amount of rain that falls in different catchments
  • how dry that soils are and how much rain they can soak up for different areas (grids)
  • the amount of water flowing in different rivers
  • the amount of water stored below ground in aquifers and above ground in reservoirs

Our measured  and updated river and sea levels across Wales  from our monitoring stations along the rivers and the coast are available online

For the next three months information on water situation can be found from Hydrological Outlook UK 

The latest and previous water situation reports are available below:
