Isn't it incredible how the Broad Authority quickly try and extricate themselves from any possible involvement, but the fact would suggest otherwise, wouldn't they?

And there was me thinking Worthy, that it was the EA that were also responsible for fisheries - no go on, blame the BA if only by inference!!

This is a mirror of the last outbreak up there and it almost certainly is, as before, an indication of the low water levels currently being seen. My guess too is that salinity levels may also be increasing - the whole area is susceptible to groundwater seepage because of its proximity to the coast. If we do not have rain then the whole area seems to suffer - we just need a damned good rain to flush it all out but not sure that is about to happen.

There had been no outbreak for quite some time until the dredging started.

There was plenty of dredging done last Year John and they were supposed to have started again yesterday.

BROADS AUTHORITY

NOTICE TO MARINERS No. 5 of 2015

Dredging on Hickling Broad

Notice is hereby given that dredging operations at the north end of the navigation channel may restrict passage close to Hickling Staithe during week days from Monday 16th March 2015 until Thursday 2nd April 2015.
During this period dredging will be in operation between 08:00 and 16:00 daily, excluding weekends. During each period of operation delays of up to 2 hours may occur. Mariners must await clear instructions from the dredging crew before attempting to pass.
Coincidence?

I am sure that I read that the Hickling dredging had been cancelled last week. I might have been able to find it if the BA web site along with every other gov. Wasn't so useless.

Terry - I do not recall any dredging on Hickling last year - no doubt you will put me straight.

I think MM maybe right about it being deferred but even if dredging had started on Monday, are you really suggesting the outbreak was just waiting for the first bucket to drop?

And my recollection is that the previous outbreak was 2 years ago, and not last year although how an outbreak did not occur when they were actually dredging is mystifying! What I understood the BA to be doing then, was to monitor the water quality very closely and at no time did the dredging have an impact on the water quality in the area.

Last year water levels were pretty normal throughout the period in question and perhaps water levels are a contributory factor?

Not sure if the link will work, but if not it was supposed to link to the "updates" page of this forum in the mariners notices bit.

Yes the ling did work and indicates that as others suggested, there is currently no dredging in the area, it having been deferred.

So now the sailing club and others will have to put up with going aground in that area - given the state of the tide currently, I guess the area concerned will almost be awash at the moment. That wont help the fish either!! Smile

The information is simple enough to find http://www.broads-authority.gov.uk/boating/navigating-the-broads/urgent-boating-information/dredging-at-hickling
