We have been working with residents living very close to the hydro to help identify the source of disruptive noise and vibrations which they have been experiencing in their homes recently. These have been traced back to the new weir B gate, which forms part of the new weir complex near Osney Lock.
The Environment Agency have been made aware of this disturbance and have pinpointed the issue to a leaking gate side seal. They are now working with the manufacturers to find a permanent fix.
We are most grateful to local residents for contacting us so quickly and for working with us to find the source of the disturbance. We hope a permanent solution is found quickly.
