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.

The Blackwater fish and eel pass project at Langford is also progressing. The outline design for the pass has been approved by the Environment Agency and is now moving into final design development for the construction phase. The pass will be located at the southern end of the existing weir structure approx. 130m upstream of Langford Mill. The attached General Arrangement drawing shows the location and proposed layout for illustrative purposes.
