Carsington Water level report June 2018

Carsington Water Level Report, 11 June 2018
Summary:  Water levels are now stable within Carsington being greater than 94% since mid-April.  However, levels are falling at Ogston and the Derwent Group but the most current (April 2018) EA Water Situation Report states that all water sources are better than the Long Term Average.
It is too early to say what the water level will be in November (for a proposed Youth Open Meeting) but records show that mud has been exposed, below the beach level, during 4 of the previous 7 years.

Water levels are high, but falling, across all reservoirs within the Derwent catchment.

I am advised that STW will be undertaking a major refurbishment of the Ambergate Pumping Station to improve its operational performance, but I don’t know when these works will be completed.
