Low water levels in the Dalsland Canal lake system

Right now, the northern parts of the canal system have low water levels. This currently applies to the lakes Foxen and Stora Le, north of Lennartsfors lock station. The fairways in the Dalsland canal still hold at least 180 cm, but always remember to take great care when navigating outside of the fairway.
