** Power outage July 13th 2018 **

The CEH site at Lancaster has re-opened as normal following the disruption caused by a power failure across the site on Friday 13th July. IT and data services were also affected. Though power was restored on Friday afternoon, data services are continuing to suffer stability issues. This may affect users of the CEH Environmental Information Platform, Environmental Information Data Centre, NRFA gauging station pages and some of our hosted websites. Please bear with us while the issues continue and we try to keep disruption to a minimum.

CEH's Lancaster site is based within the campus of Lancaster University and forms part of the Lancaster Environment Centre.
