Erne System

Reducing Water Levels

Waterways Ireland has been advised by Rivers Agency that from 1st October, in keeping with water level management protocols, users of the Erne System can expect reducing water levels throughout the navigation as water levels on Lower Lough Erne are lowered, weather permitting, to a minimum of 149 feet (Above Poolbeg Ordnance Datum), in anticipation of increased precipitation during Autumn & Winter.
If water levels do fall masters should be aware of:

  • Navigation
    To reduce the risk of grounding masters should navigate on or near the centreline of the channel, avoid short cutting in dog-legged channels and navigating too close to navigation markers.
  • Mooring of Vessels
    Masters should be aware that water levels may change rapidly and that mooring lines will require adjustment therefore these should be checked regularly.

Kesh River Dredging

Waterways Ireland wishes to advise masters and owners of vessels that Waterways Ireland will be carrying out dredging works at the mouth of the Kesh River on Lower Lough Erne.

The works are planned to take place between the 18th and the 29th of September 2017. The marina at Belleek will remain closed from Monday the 11th of September 2017 until mid November due to ongoing construction works required for the replacement of the jetties. (Marine Notice 92/2017 refers).
