Come on Andy. Read it proper 

 

Not sure what part of this you don't understand to be honest.

Our new division, the ‘Flood Management Division’, has brought together staff from both the Manx Utilities and the DOI into a team under a single point of political leadership. The staff of the Department’s Met Office are also incorporated into this team.

To be honest I understand it completely. The Manx Utilities Staff that it refers to are no longer Manx Utilities staff. THEY ARE DOI STAFF

Manx Utilities has nothing (nada) absolutely nothing at all, in any respect, to do with Rivers or Flood Risk. Nothing at all 🤣

I admit the wording is a bit confusing

That's weird. They were here on Tuesday taking a tree down and making good. And they're currently all parked up the road finishing off some work on the river that has to be completed by tomorrow when the river work permit runs out.  Should I run along the road and tell them that a man on the internet says they shouldn't have anything to do with it?

 

Who were? MUA? They never had any manual workers anyway that dealt with rivers, only flood risk management. Only the DOI have ever had river manual workers. Are you sure it wasn't a sewer or a water main?

Yes. Tell then some bloke on MF who actually knows what he is talking about told you :whistling:

So, you can stand down Phantom   I think I got this. :)

 

I think JW probably has a Sand Bag Emperor outfit. 

Sounds like you've got it all in hand.  Carry on.

Glen Road is holding well. The river is extremely full and extreme fast but apart from rainfall, no water on the road - which just goes to show what happens when some doofus doesn't leave a hole in a flood defence when a weather warning is in place.

Minorca Hill and Beach Hill has a lot of run off but it's running off exactly where it should - into the drains and back into the river - The Shore hotel must be delighted as it's normally the first place to get hit.

There's about 700cm gap between the top of the river and the bottom of the new bridge.  High tide is in an hour so we hall see what happens but lets hope it all makes it way through,

No debris whatsoever coming down the river which is a huge change from previous heavy rainfalls.

So, you can stand down Phantom   I think I got this. :)

it's a good job you're not on tape measure duty because i highly doubt there was a 7 metre  gap between the bridge and the river.
