River notice 07/20

River Lagan lowering Sunday 09 February 2020

Notice is hereby given that the River Lagan between Lagan Weir and Stranmillis Weir will be unsafe for navigation between 0000hrs and 1500hrs hrs on Sunday 9 February.

The river is being allowed to go tidal to create storage in the river so that a barrage can be carried out to exclude a predicted storm surge over Sunday morning’s tide at 11.00 hrs.

River users are advised not to be on the river during these periods as the river level will fall substantially below the normal minimum impoundment level.
