Thames River Conditions
Posted on : 06/08/2012
The British Summer has seen more rain than average and the risk of flooding has been heightened. At times, it has not been sensible to take the boat out for a trip down the river. That can be frustrating but safety has to be a consideration.
Looking at the River Thames Conditions website it currently reports that there are no serious problems with the river stream conditions and given that we are in the August holiday season, that must come as something of a relief to all concerned. This Environment Agency website provides useful and upto date information and must surely be a favourite for anybody using the Thames or other rivers in England.
The website also provides some useful information about signage in and around Lochs. Here is the detail.
RED BOARD - We advise users of all boats not to navigate because the strong flows make it difficult and dangerous.
YELLOW BOARD WITH UP ARROW - We advise users of all unpowered boats not to navigate and users of powered boats to find a safe mooring. This is because river flows are likely to strengthen and red boards could be displayed very soon and without warning.
YELLOW BOARD WITH DOWN ARROW - We advise users of all unpowered boats not to navigate and users of powered boats to navigate with caution.
