River Chelmer (Langford)

The Eel Regulation Compliance project at the River Chelmer 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 Chelmer.

Update by Nicola Wigington

Hi everyone,

Site establishment is now well underway and the temporary works to provide access between the river and the treatment works will be starting soon.  We'll be carrying out some ground surveys in the next couple of weeks so you may notice a little activity near the river.  We did have some delays to the start of the project but we're still very much on track to deliver it before the end of the year.

We haven't needed to divert the footpath yet but when we do, I'll be sharing the route of the diversion on this site so if you think that might impact you please remember to check back for updates, or follow the project to receive notifications.
