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 ESW Project Manager

Langford Mill Eel Screen Update

Finishing works on the Mill screen and surroundings are mostly complete now, the screen has passed a 28-day trial period successfully and it's now in normal operation. It will be monitored and maintained regularly by the local Operations team to make sure it continues to perform well through all seasons.

An information board has been provided to the Mill House Hotel to support any queries their customers may have about the project. There are similar boards at the River Chelmer Intake and at the Langford Museum of Power, why not pop along to the museum and take a look!
