Description

Please be advised that a number of  white dumpy/ tonne bags and some large pieces of black plastic have washed out of the temporary dam at Holt Fish Pass construction site.

The debris is likely to be floating on or near the surface for some distance downstream of Holt Lock.

We are working on a plan to recover as much material as possible, but in the meantime advise vessels navigating downstream of Holt to proceed with caution and maintain a keen lookout, to avoid any risk of entanglement.

We will update this notice as information becomes available.
