Buterud lock, Dalsland Canal

Buterud lock is a single lock with a height difference of 0.08 m. From here, the clearance is reduced from 20 to 17 m.

North of the lock in Buterud is a short stretch of canal where boaters should be on the watch for relatively narrow patches where the channel and rapids meet. Boaters coming from the north should be particularly aware of this heavy current issue to allow time to  slow down, moor at the waiting jetty, give the signal and wait for the lock to open.


Lock chambers: 1
Elevation: 0,08 m
Duration: 10 minutes
