Further to the notice earlier this week, we are still experiencing low water levels on the Lancaster Canal.

We have a contract team completing further weed removal works on Wednesday 4 July.  An update will be issued on Friday 5 July.

Description:

Following a sustained period of warm weather, we are experiencing unexpected levels of weed growth on the feed at Tewitfield on the Lancaster Canal.  This has resulted in low water levels.  To conserve water, we are implementing opening times on Glasson Locks.  The Glasson Flight will be open to navigation from 9am to 3pm daily. 

We have a contract team completing weed removal works later this week and an update will be issued on Friday 29 June 2018.
