Scottish Borders Council have said they are continuing to review and respond to the major flooding that happened in Jedburgh on the 5th August.
The Skip Running burn overflowed at the mouth of a culvert at the top of the town and the water flowed right through the town centre. The burn rose two metres in less than fifteen minutes.
The investigation, commissioned by Scottish Borders Council, is well underway and aims to assess how the heavy rainfall affected this burn so that flooding can be averted in the future.
The Council have said they will keep residents informed of their findings and proposals, with the first report expected at the beginning of September.
SBC has also applied for emergency financial assistance from the Scottish Government in light of the flooding in Jedburgh and the central Borders in general.
Councillor David Parker, the Council Leader, said:
On 5 August the area faced an intense spell of heavy rainfall, as explained by Met Office Advisor Ross Melville:
Alarms for the Skip Running burn's grill sensor were set off at 7.58am and within 10 minutes flood water was flowing into the town centre. The grill was cleared prior to this by SBC on Saturday evening.
Around 25 residential and 25 business properties were affected by the flooding.
