Well a couple of months later and the siphon is up and running again and the lake is emptying well. It is due to rain which will put the whole process back again however hopefully not as much as it did last time. The pêcherie has been built in the dam area which is another requirement of the DDE. It’s purpose is to catch any fish that might get through in the emptying process.
We noticed that there were a lot of giant mussels stranded on the mud and so had a fun hour or so chucking them back into the water.
