Underused waterways increases botulism.

Thousands of bits killed each year but lockdown has caused millions.. hot weather. Rochdale canal sites as example.

Well that's local to me and the water has been low because they've been repairing it and one of the feed ins doesn't work.

Nothing to do with lockdown really. Canal is never busy anyway.

Blaming hot weather. It's been like winter for a fortnight or more. One day of sunshine in weeks.

Lockdown lies.

Could be - locks don't get used nearly as much, the main reason for the canals to be refreshed with water at the head gone and flow reduced to little/nothing, would stop the flushing out of stagnant water etc, plus the hot weather.  Wouldn't rule it out.

except locks mostly move stagnant water from one level to the level below.
