EEL PROTECTION SCHEME

River Bure (Belaugh)

The Eel Regulation Compliance project at the River Bure in Belaugh 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 Bure.

Update by Nicola Wigington

More good progress was made on site last week. The kiosk was installed first and the control equipment was placed inside on Friday. Electrical connections and testing will follow.

The infrastructure needs to be finished before the eel screens can be installed but if progress continues to remain on track the screens should be going in at the end of this month or early October. That activity will be weather-dependant as it will involve a dive team working in the river.
