Once commissioned next week it will enable fish and eel passage to the upper reaches of the mole for the first time in several hundred years!

We have just installed this maintenance platform to enable safe weed clearing from a drainage channel for the Environment Agency near Rye in East Sussex.

Oxford River Wall

Oxford River WallDue to it’s age and the burrowing of Signal Crayfish, this 40 metre section of historic wall in central Oxford on the River Cherwell required re-building.

So it has been brought into the 21st century with new crayfish proof footings and a solid concrete wall behind faced with the original stone and incorporating new drainage.

Aquatic planting was included at the toe of the wall and wildflower turf at the top as wildlife mitigation and to improve the aesthetics.

Temporary dams have been constructed to divert the water while the low cost baffles are installed along with four notched pre-barrages to raise water levels and maintain a flow of water down the fish pass all year round.

The work is part of a larger scale project to improve fishery habitat and fish passage in the catchment.

Burton Park

photo 1We have completed a lake refurbishment project this summer at Burton Park in West Sussex. Approximately 7500m3 of silt and vegetation were removed and placed in a storage lagoon constructed on adjacent land, this material will be turned to dry it over the next few years and then re-used on the estate.

As part of the re-furbishment works the main spillway was repaired and a new monk structure constructed to manage the water level which can be seen in the foreground on the left. In addition a causeway was constructed across the middle of the lake forming a silt trap on the upstream side of it and serving as an established access for future dredging works.
