Lack of foresight. Water-saving measures should have been thought about 6 weeks ago. There are still boats here coming up/down these double locks SINGLY, where's the sense in that? A part of me hopes it does not rain in England until 2019 - it would be interesting to see the Headless Chickens running around and scrapping over that last bottle of Highland Spring in Asda.
Yeabut Highland Spring comes from Scotland. Not from the Highlands of course, but never mind! And no matter how much you wish it wouldn’t rain in Scotland until 2019, that ain’t ever going to happen!
Tel - LEM - a - Khus for the thickos that didn't do the classics at proper school.
does anyone know what the unique set of water resource issues are?
As I understand it, there was originally meant to be a feeder link to the river Ribble from the greenberfield. But it never got built. I'm sure Pluto will,be along to tell me I'm wrong and give us full chapter and verse. But at least I've started the dialogue.
the latest email I got from crt says they are closing another section from the 17th Aug - We're currently holed up in Skipton but will make a dash for it to get back to Wakey in time for blacking on the 20th... hmmf.
- Notice Alert Leeds & Liverpool Canal Starts At: Lock 29, Bingley 5 Rise Top Lock Ends At: Lock 1, River Lock
Friday 17 August 2018 08:00 until further notice
Type: Navigation Closure Reason: Water resources
Original message: Due to the continued drawdown of the river levels, the prolonged low rainfall and with the forecast for further dry weather, the Trust will be implementing temporary closures to navigation between Bingley 5 Rise Top Lock(Lock 29) to River Lock (Lock 1) at the beginning of the Leeds and Liverpool Canal, commencing on Friday 17th August.
The main lock flights will be padlocked closed at Bingley Three and Five Rise (Locks 22-29), Field (Locks 16-18), Newlay (Locks 11-13), Forge (Locks 8-10) and the gates will be ashed up to reduce leakage. Additionally to prevent unauthorised use, measures will be taken to make all the locks inoperable within this section.
It’s not clear how long the closure will last for but it’s likely to be throughout August and potentially beyond if there is no significant, sustained rainfall. While the closure will prevent use of that stretch of canal by boats the towpath will remain open for visitors and the local community alike to enjoy.
The canal will remain open between Holme Bridge, Gargrave and the top of the Bingley 5 Rise Locks, approximately 20 miles

JohnV: There are other drugs but I haven't found the side effects with Ramipril to be bad, it seems to just make my throat a bit more sensitive so things that might have just tickled my throat and make me want to clear it now make me cough.

loddon: The cough is the only one I get from ramipril, although the combinatins of drugs I am on has interesting effects.
