It is low
Nothing to do with Wigan, but if you want to see a reservoir with really low water, visit this site: http://www.lacdeguerledan.com
When it was created the lake drowned 17 locks of the Nantes to Brest Canal in Brittany. Being interested in canals, I wanted to see what remained of the locks etc., so I made a visit there last week. In the past the lake has been drained regularly for inspections - but this is probably the last such draining as electronic apparatus has now been installed to carry out inspections without the need to drain.
A little bit eerie David, no, not Erie, it's to small, lol. Again, nothing to do with Wigan, in Australia recently i saw what is known as The Disappearing Lake, off the main highway between Canberra and Sydney, Lake George, 16 miles long x 6 miles wide, average depth 1 metre, maximum depth 7.5 metres, there one week, gone the next, it has no outflows, just evaporation.
remember fishing here when it was stocked with trout .early 80s biggest one i caught 4 lb 9 oz rainbow
So big barry.
Shut up Garrry
