EEL PROTECTION SCHEME

River Blackwater (Langford)

The Eel Regulation Compliance project at the River Blackwater in Langford is for installation of eel friendly screening equipment at our abstraction point on the river. The work is driven by the need for Essex & Suffolk Water to comply with the Eels Regulations (2009) and will improve the biodiversity value in the River Blackwater.

Update by Nicola Wigington

Hi everyone, this is just a short update to let you know that the designs for the new eel-friendly screen at the Langford Mill are progressing well and I will soon be able to share some drawings here on the portal so you can see what we’re planning to install.

I also wanted to make you aware if you’re in the local area that we will have a couple of groups on site next week carrying out some non-intrusive surveys so please don’t be alarmed if you see a few more vehicles and people around than usual.
