Marine Notice No 61 of 2020 - Re-issued - Shannon Navigation - Low water levels on upstream approaches to Meelick and Victoria Lock

Notice Number 61 of 2020

MARINE NOTICE
No 61 of 2020

SHANNON NAVIGATION

LOW WATER LEVELS ON UPSTREAM APPROACHES TO MEELICK AND VICTORIA LOCK

CAUTIONARY WARNING

Re-issued

Waterways Ireland wishes to advise masters and owners of vessels that low water levels exist on the upstream approaches to Meelick and Victoria Lock.

Water levels are currently up to 39cm below Summer levels.

The reason for the localised low water levels is that sluices are open at Meelick weir which creates a draw-down of water levels in the area.

Masters of vessels, particularly those with deep drafts, are advised to navigate with additional caution and to remain within the navigation at all times.
