The Executive Agency for Maritime Administration's Directorate River Supervision – Ruse informed on Monday that low water levels are hampering sailing in the Bulgarian section of the Danube river.

Four critical sections on the river have been identified – Belene, Batin, the mouth of Yantra river and Popina.

In these sections both the width and depth of the sailing route is limited.

So far there has been no information on any ships running aground.

The captains of ships have to take into consideration the declared depth in the critical sections which is between 2.2 and 2.4 metres.

The Executive Agency for Exploration and Maintenance of the Danube River informed that the level near Ruse is 58 centimetres, with expectations being for it to drop by another five centimeters over the next two days.
