Avon runs low

The Environment Agency has two gauging stations for monitoring water levels on the Avon, at Didworthy and Loddiswell.  Data from both indicate a severe reduction in water flow during the current very dry spell of weather, especially in the lower reaches.

On Saturday 21st July, the depth at Didworthy was 0.35m (normal range = 0- 1.4m) and at Loddiswell was 0.19m (normal range = 0.25-1.8m).
