SO8540 : Flood barriers near the Swan

Flood barriers near the Swan
Flood barriers near the Swan
There are (at least) two heights of quickly erectable barriers.
The smaller ones, close to the camera, have been deployed on slightly higher ground and are no longer needed as the water level peaked yesterday.
The taller ones protecting The Swan are still holding back about 50cm of flood water.
A powerful pump with its own continuously running generator is removing any seapage water from a drain and pumping it down the pipe back into the river.
