UPDATE VII High Water
Forecasts for the water levels along the Rhine remain unchanged. The Rhine was opened to shipping yesterday morning.
The Maxau Gauge, for the section from Germersheim to Iffezheim, is still up to High Water Mark I (620cm to 750cm). This means that there is still a speed limit in force, and overtaking is not allowed.
Water levels in the Upper Rhine are also unchanged. A worsening of the situation at the weekend is not expected.
