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

We have a busy couple of weeks ahead of us with the divers coming to site late this week to install the screens into the river. There are likely to be a few more people on site than you may have previously noticed and with that in mind we'll be taking extra care to work within the government's construction guidelines for Covid-19 and keep distanced appropriately. With the additional activity you might notice a bit more noise during this period while the new screens and the wash system are being put through their paces but this will only be during normal working hours. I'll share some more photos of the site progress in my next update.
