There are no MSL's for 2012. This is because the primary channel is recording over 1m high because the stilling well opening is buried in silt.

Documentation added 2014-07-04

There again no MSL's values for Portpatrick 2013. The primary channel, the float gauge is still recording over 1m high. There is also an issue with power to the gauge, when the float gauge loses power it also loses calibration. TGI visited the site 27.02.2013 to carry out general maintenance and change the compressor. The issues with the gauge will be investigated during the next general maintenance visit.
