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

The screens have been running well since the installation last month, commissioning is nearly done so we're about to enter into the final testing period. The last few civils works are being completed, installing the fencing and making good the footpath ready for the diversion to be lifted, hopefully by mid-December.
