Rhine water levels 2021 and similar topics


Recommended Posts

Lake Constance remains on low flooding status. Rain will keep the level high and make the Maxau level rise again fast. Right now that is 681cm and the current forecast is for reaching 750cm during tomorrow which would lead to the suspension of river traffic. Another spike which is a rarity in August.

So, that was indeed close. The level at Maxau has gone down to 734cm. It will stay above 700cm well into Thursday, the forecast for after that becomes too uncertain and will depend on the rain in Switzerland and the hills surrounding the Upper Rhine valley.


As regards river traffic bans and slow traffic we are not out of the woods yet.
