Update on 11/07/2022:

The levels have risen slightly as we expected and we are continuing to monitor.

Update on 07/07/2022:

The reason for the low water levels is because the Griff Brook, where we pump water from, has run dry.

We are opening the water valve at Hawkesbury Junction to allow water from the Oxford Canal onto the Coventry Canal. We are also planning to divert water from the River Swift onto the Oxford Canal to help with the supply.

We will know by the weekend what impact this has had.

Please look out for further updates.

ADVICE (7am Monday 4 July 2022 until further notice)

We are currently experiencing problems with low water levels on the Coventry Canal.

Our water management team are doing all they can to manage this situation.
