Bourg releases

Post by Grumpy old man »

Hi All
Does anybody know the state of play about water releases at Bourg on the Isere. I've heard because of maintenance on the dam that there is shortage of water and so there will be very little releases over summer. Is this so?

Cheers

That seems to be the word, we have heard similar and now re-scheduling planned summer trip(s) with Scots slalom groups.

Hi CD
Doesn't sound good but can't seem to confirm it anywhere.
Hope Andrew enjoyed his new boat at Tully.

Not seen anything defined, but Gary G was out there skiing and raised questions with local tourist office as he noted Tigne Dam empty and the pipes dismantled. Didn't get much from Tourist Office but changed tack and queried rafting this summer, he was advised that they were hoping to be able to run rafting but at best it would be restricted and potentially less than 1-2 hours/day.

We took the view to change plans rather than risk no water or raft infested waters..

Andrew is loving his new boat, reasonable runs individually but got a spot in the Scots J16 team and stepped up to the mark. So plenty more potential to bring on stream...

See Zac has had a good first day at Penrith, up there for the Final so hopefully he brings back some bling..
