REFRESHING NEWS

Clevedon Marine Lake will be open as normal, full of fresh water from Friday 2nd August, allowing for three overtops to fully refill the lake.  Please note: The lake might not be full on Thursday 1st August.

Refills have become a popular spectacle to watch – as 30 million litres of sea water gushes over the seawall into the lake.  THE LAKE SHOULD REFILL ANY TIME AFTER 6PM ON 31ST JULY.

The penstocks will be opened at around 8am, and volunteers will be cleaning in and around the lake from 10.30am on 31st July.

Clevedon Marine Lake will be closed to the public and fully drained on Wednesday 31st July so that it can refresh with water from the Severn Estuary repeatedly during the next sequence of overtops between 31st July and 5th August.

The water quality will be retested on 7th August, after the overtops.  Updates on the water quality in Clevedon Marine Lake are shared here.

There’s always lots to do at the lake in terms of litter picking, cleaning, muscle work and site management, so if you can spare any time to help out, please contact volunteer@marlens.org.uk
