ADVICE (7am Monday 13 December until 5pm Wednesday 22 December 2021)

The water level between Birkwood Lock (Broadreach Lock if closed due to flooding) and Fall Ings Lock will be lowered by contractors working on the hydro plant at Kirkthorpe by a maximum of 150mm during daylight hours between the 13th December and the 22nd December.

The actual works will only take one day but the actual lowering will be dependent on weather conditions and so it is difficult to predict which actual day the works will occur.
