Navigation and service

Low water likely to prove tenacious (23th update, 20 December 2018)

Since the beginning of December, the water supply increased mainly in the West of Germany. Because of the brief and limited amount of rainfall in the West of Germany and in other, less fortunate river basins, the increase has proven to be short-lived. Since the water levels have fallen again, navigation currently experiences disruption. Substantial rainfall around Christmas will replenish the water resources, although forecasts predict the water levels and runoff to decrease once more towards the end of the year.
