The Vaki Counter at Loch Doon has been playing up so technicians from ACE Ltd, Vaki’s agent in the UK came to service or remove it for repair today. Unfortunately after trying some possible measures, they had to remove it for full diagnostics. It will be returned to Iceland for repair (if possible).
It was a cold morning to be hanging around at the loch so Gillian and I headed for a look at smolt trapping points on the burns while the Vaki was unbolted.
The loch has been high all winter so after leaving, we nipped round to Drumjohn to see what flow was being diverted to the Ken system. This discharge was in full flow and higher than I’ve seen it before which I expect reflects the amount of water that has fallen this year. It will be interesting to see what volume of water has gone this route is the data is available.
