Water levels tomorrow morning (Jan 24th) in Porth yr Ogof
« on: January 23, 2018, 05:54:17 pm »
Dwr Cymru will be carrying out a 3900l/s (3.9cumec) 'scour test' at Ystradfellte reservoir at 10am tomorrow (Wed 24 Jan).

The test should last only a few minutes, so the impact may not be significant - but if there are delays in the valve operation it is possible that water level could  rise at the cave by as much as half a metre.

Groups should therefore be diligent and exercise caution in the cave tomorrow morning.

Apologies for the short notice...

Hi Allan, thanks for that.

Do you know if the path from the car park down to the Main and Tradesman's entrances has been reopened? The last we heard was that the NPA were hoping to have it open on the 10th but there's been no confirmation. The question has been asked elsewhere on the forum.

Heavy rain in South Wales this morning.  Forget caving.  Stay in bed and watch the telly.

Hi all
I have no information as to the state of paths around Porth yr Ogof, I rely on updates from Steve Rayner (SWOAPG)
Cheers
