We currently have several stoppages on the Hatton Lock flight all running at the same time, which is limiting our ability to supply water to the long pound between the bottom of Hatton Locks and Cape Locks. As this is causing problems for many of the moored boats within the pound at the Saltisford Arm we are reluctantly closing Cape Locks to try and conserve the level.
