Update on 11/01/2019:

CRT are able to advise that, after a recent depth survey on the River Severn along this stretch of water, the noted depths are as follows:-

Between 1.60m and 1.75m along the main channel and 1.50m along the fringe.

We are now preparing a dredging programme to further improve the situation and will advise as soon this is in place.

We still advise caution whilst navigating this section of the River due to changing currents depending on the tidal situation

Update on 08/10/2018:

Please be advised that we have observed a build-up of silt at the top of the Partings, which is narrowing the channel by the old Ronson site. Customers are advised to navigate this section of the river in single file and keep to the centre of the channel. Please take extra care when entering or leaving the Partings and remain vigilant for any obstructions.

Update on 17/08/2018:

Please be aware that though we are no longer under regulation from the Environment Agency, water levels along the River Severn will be inconsistent for some time.

Please ensure you navigate with caution and remain vigilant for obstructions. Report any concerns you may have to the waterway team.

If you require further information then please contact the Gloucester Dock Office on 01452 318012 or at enquiries.southwalessevern@canalrivertrust.org.uk

Update on 14/08/2018:

Please be aware that we are no longer under EA regulations as the water levels have risen.

Please ensure you still navigate with caution and remain vigilant for any obstructions. Any concerns you may have should be reported to the waterway team on 01452 318012 or at enquiries.southwalessevern@canalrivertrust.org.uk.

Update on 20/07/2018:

Please be advised that due to the long period of hot weather, we are currently experiencing very low water levels along the River Severn navigation.

Due to these low water levels, EA regulations demand that we now share locks along the river.

Please ensure you navigate with caution and remain vigilant for obstructions. Report any concerns you may have to the waterway team.

ADVICE (10am Friday 6 July 2018 until further notice)

Please be advised that due to the long period of hot weather the River Severn Navigation currently has low water levels.

Please navigate with caution.
