Strong stream warnings

The Environment Agency gives out stream warnings to tell you about conditions that may mean you should not go out in your boat. You may also see red flags at boat clubs.

Check the current conditions on the River Thames - they’re published online every day by 11am.

You can check strong stream warnings for other rivers by calling the phone line.
