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 haven't had the full report back from the archaeologists yet but Norfolk County Council have reviewed it and given us the green light to continue with the piling works next week. The piles have been re-sited so they won't interfere with the flint wall in any way. The piling is now planned for Thursday 16th and Friday 17th.

This week the team have continued on grounds preparation works and installing some ducting. They had a fabulous view of the river today with the sun perfectly placed for a mirror effect. There are definitely worse places to work!
