Getting our river back
Now that the summer weather is past, we appear to be getting our river back. Over this week, much of the building crap has been removed. There are what looks like some permanent changes: a third level of weir, and a new concrete construction around where the water gets siphoned off for the canal. The canal is also looking healthier, though that could be in part because it was dark (well, deep twilight) when I last looked, and the canal definitely looks it’s best (beautiful) in those conditions.
Hopefully they’ll reopen the path within a few days. They’ve now had the full 90 days closure they claimed, so we bloomin’ well should get it back. No excuse for delay, either: the weather has been very good during the time it’s been closed, in contrast to the wet weather earlier in the summer.
