Warning: This data is stale! For some reason, we have not been able to obtain updated levels for over 24 hours. The current displayed level is probably incorrect and you should not rely on it.

Levels in tidal waters are measured from mean sea level, not from the river bed. They can, therefore, be negative, and do not give any indication of water depth. Tidal levels are not necessarily updated frequently, and may not reflect tidal movements throughout the day.
