Making Space for Water

During December the restoration of the balancing pond at Stoneydelph commenced for Tamworth Borough Council.  The pond was drained down and over 5000 tonnes of silt was removed.  Surveys included the monitoring of water quality to demonstrate improvements to the watercourse.  Communication with local residents was key to the success of the project.

During the summer maintenance season the Company used its long reach excavators with weed cutting baskets to remove weed from the watercourses in Somerset.  The Environment Agency is committed to maintaining watercourses and operates a cyclic programme to remove weed and debris that can restrict flow in the main channels.

The company was involved with the maintenance of several pools, locally in Shropshire.  The works included clearing silt and vegetation together with drainage improvements to benefit the wildlife ecology and the amenity value in key locations.

Following a leak within the sluice structure on the historic 'Long Canal' at Wrest Park there was concern that the watercourse would drain down and cause damage.  A rapid response included the use of a long reach excavator to install a temporary dam so that the sluice could be repaired.

Building Bridges

The Company has again supported the ICE initiative for promoting Civil Engineering in schools, by way of building a big model bridge with the pupils that they are able to walk across.

Returning to Fleet Pond for the ongoing restoration works saw the focus on the reedbeds and silt removal from the western side of the water.  Detailed discussions with Natural England recognised the importance of the SSSI and the need to consider the ecology and water quality.

During renovation works to the main house at Croome Park for the National Trust, a collapsed culvert was unearthed that threatened to undermine the surrounding area.  A long reach excavator was used to sit back from the edge of the excavation and assist in the stabilisation works.

The Abbey Green site is undergoing a major restoration project, including enhancements to the watercourses.  The environmental improvements will be of great benefit to both the public and the natural ecology at the site which links into the River Anker.
