MARINE NOTICE, No 97 of 2018

Erne System

Reducing Water Levels

Waterways Ireland has been advised by DfI Rivers 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.

Patrick Harkin, Inspector of Navigation, 24 September 2018

Reduzierung des Wasserspiegels
Waterways Ireland wurde von DfI Rivers darauf hingewiesen, dass die Nutzer des Erne-Systems ab dem 1. Oktober in Übereinstimmung mit den Wasserstandsmanagementprotokollen mit einer Senkung des Wasserspiegels während der gesamten Schifffahrt rechnen können, da die Wasserstände am Lower Lough Erne bei entsprechender Witterung auf ein Minimum von 149 Fuß gesenkt werden (Above Poolbeg Ordnance Datum), in Erwartung zunehmender Niederschläge im Herbst und Winter.
Wenn der Wasserstand sinkt, sollten die Kapitäne darauf achten:

  • Navigation
    Um das Risiko einer Erdung zu verringern, sollten die Kapitäne auf oder in der Nähe der Mittellinie des Kanals navigieren, kurze Schnitte in dog-legged Kanälen vermeiden und zu nahe an Navigationsmarken navigieren.
  • Festmachen Schiffen
    Die Kapitäne sollten sich bewusst sein, dass sich der Wasserstand schnell ändern kann und dass die Festmacherleinen angepasst werden müssen, daher sollten diese regelmäßig überprüft werden
