MARINE NOTICE No. 95 of 2019 Updated Erne System Reducing Water Levels

MARINE NOTICE No. 95 of 2019

Updated

Erne System

Reducing Water Levels

 

Waterways Ireland has been advised by DfI Rivers that from 1st October, in keeping with water level management protocols, users of the Erne System can expect reducing water levels throughout the navigation as water levels on Lower Lough Erne are lowered, weather permitting, to a minimum of 149 feet (Above Poolbeg Ordnance Datum), in anticipation of increased precipitation during Autumn & Winter.

If water levels do fall masters should be aware of:

Navigation

To reduce the risk of grounding, masters should navigate on or near the centreline of the channel, avoid short cutting in dog-legged channels and navigating too close to navigation markers.

Mooring of Vessels

Masters should be aware that water levels may change rapidly and that mooring lines will require adjustment therefore these should be checked regularly.

MARINE NOTICE No. 101 of 2019 Shannon Navigation Limerick Installation of water level and flow meters

MARINE NOTICE No. 101 of 2019

Shannon Navigation

Limerick

Installation of water level and flow meters

 

Waterways Ireland wishes to advise masters and owners that 4 water level and current recorders/meters are in place close to, or in the Navigation in Limerick City with an additional 1 meter located further downstream in the Shannon Estuary (which is outside the navigational remit of Waterways Ireland).

 

  • Two recorders are located either side of Sarsfield bridge are bottom mounted to a depth of 2m water at low water and are buoyed to the surface. These should not hinder the main navigation but other boat and recreational users are advised to exercise caution if passing these units.
  • The recorder in the Abbey River and the one located furthest upstream (Thomond Weir/Salmon Bridge) are both bottom mounted units, anchored with ground ropes to the shore, so have no navigational interference, but all users are advised to exercise caution if passing these units. 
  • The downstream tide level recorder in the estuary is located close to a reef, not in the channel and has no surface marker so is not a navigational hazard, but all users are advised to exercise caution if passing this area. 
  • All five recorders will be fully removed on or after the 25th September 2019.

Waterways Ireland thanks its customers for their cooperation.
