Waterways Ireland wishes to advise masters and owners of vessels that high water levels and fast flows exist on the Shannon Navigation.

Masters of vessels and water users should proceed with additional caution and bear the following in mind when on the water during high water conditions,

- Air draft is reduced under all bridges and power lines

- Water velocity is significantly increased

- Access to jetties can be difficult as gangways and pontoons are elevated

- Navigation markers, pontoons, jetties may be submerged

- Mooring lines should checked regularly if it safe to do so.

The following mooring facilities are closed due to high water levels:

- Athlone Downstream Jetty

- Ballinasloe Marina

- Pollboy Jetties

- ShannonBridge Quay

- Banagher Harbour

- Clonmacnoise Floating Jetties

- Victoria Lock floating Jetties

- Reddins Quay (Tuamgraney)

Waterways Ireland thanks all vessel owners and operators for their co-operation in relation to this matter.
