Long Description:
Håndbetjent sluseanlæg ved Odense Å. Vandhøjden omkring vandmøllen og fiskepassagen styres af sluseanlæggene.
I vinterhalvåret er vandhøjden i åen højere end om sommeren. Derfor åbnes der for sluseanlægget i vintermånederne så vandet løber hurtigere igennem.


Hand-operated sluice system at Odense River. The water level around the old watermill from 1788 and the fish passage are controlled by the sluice systems.
In winter, the water level in the river is higher than in summer. Therefore, the sluice system is opened during the winter months so that the water flows faster.
