Third party investigations have shown there is a blockage in the underground pipeline near Townhead, Glasgow which supplies 70% of the water needed to operate the #ForthandClydeCanal. While we are using other water sources we are only seeing half the flow needed (1/5)
Scottish Canals are installing fencing and safety messaging at key locations advising the public to stay away from the canal channel, lock gates, and chambers, and ask that everyone stays out of the silt as these actions pose safety risks. (2/5)
While our operations staff work hard to manage the water we do have in the canal, all boat navigation remains suspended. Residential boating locations remain unaffected, but we have contacted all boating customers and marine organisations to advise of the current situation. (3/5)
We are working with @ScottishEPA to ensure we take the necessary steps to protect nesting birds and fish in the canal. Specialist contractors will carry out a fish rescue at two locations - Falkirk and Glasgow - to transfer fish to unaffected waters. (4/5)
