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 ESW Project Manager

Langford Mill Eel Screen Update

The screen installation works at the Mill are complete and the screen wipe and wash system are now in operation. Optimisation adjustments and testing will continue over the next few weeks to maximise the screen's operating efficiency.

Peripheral works like fencing, pathways and reinstatement of the grounds will continue for a few days but should be complete by mid-February.
