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

The screens are still working well and haven’t been affected by any flooding or high water experienced in the last few weeks. During January the team have split their time between Belaugh and the site on the River Waveney near Beccles. They have successfully removed the old drum screens and have been training our Operatives to use the new systems. Next up for Belaugh are the new covers over the old drum screen chamber (inside the pumping station site boundary) and there are some minor works to complete in and around the kiosk by the river.
