Once again there has been a landslide in recent weeks above Catrine Dam. This is the second major slide within a year. The debris at the foot of the bank causes gravel and sediment to build up, shallowing the pool and deflecting the flow to the opposite bank and today I noticed that this too is eroding.
I’m not sure who is responsible for the bank but I’d suggest in it’s current state, it poses a significant risk to the dam with large timber mobilised and washing downstream. I expect that unless some way is found to stabilise the situation, the trash screens at the dam will need constant clearing after each rise in water levels.
