The intake is currently still drawing fine gravels under the boats and blocking up the screens. We monitored the intake throughout the night and cut R2 flows off to maintain flows to the rest of the scheme. The digger has been in the river again early this morning removing more fine gravels and we have manually cleaned screens again.
We are working to get water back to R2 as soon as possible.
We will continue to monitor the situation and minimise disruptions as much as we can.
