River levels

Rain Chasers river levels
EA river levels. Less than 1m is a bit of a scrape and 1.5 is high.

There is a pipe on a footbridge near Llanwrtyd Wells and the river can be run from anywhere 1.5 m below this pipe. If the water is level with the pipe the water is very high. The pipes can be found at GR 867473. To be honest, the pipes are not that much use. We did the river at 1.07 on the Environment agency guage and this was good. I would not want to do it any lower. The river does rise and fall quicky.

You can also get a idea of what the river levels are like at a washpool above LLanwytyd Wells GR 859499. If the water is flowing over a pipe the water levels are high.
