We've been here before

Well, well, well. Who's taking my water? Mike Colles updates us!! Good news.

British Waterways advised me on Wednesday of this week that the pollution of the stretch canal on the Wolverhampton Level near Bilston, caused by a factory fire three weeks ago has now been decontaminated.
 
This means that they have been able to free the water from this level and stop using Edgbaston Reservoir for the moment. There is a small flow of water into the reservoir, but pretty ineffective until we get some meaningful rain.
