Water levels have ratcheted upwards since the last picture taken at the end of January (see archive) and have reached the highest level this Winter and for decades previously.  North Lanarkshire Council have written to Central Scotland MSP Hugh O’Donnell, setting out the issues and responsibilities.  They have undertaken to inspect the outlet tunnnel “when water levels permit”.  Press reports indicate similar undertakings to Lenzie Golf Club by the landowners who have first responsibility.  In previous years, levels dropped to a safe inspection level in early March.  This year, even when there has been no rain for a period, the water level is reducing very little.  The hope that natural drainage will eventually be enough to allow tunnel inspection and clearance therefore seems questionable.
