River Stour (Brantham)

The Eel Regulation Compliance project at Brantham will comprise the installation of eel friendly screening equipment at our abstraction point on the river Stour. The work is driven by the need for Essex & Suffolk Water to comply with the Eels Regulations (2009) and improving the biodiversity value in the river Stour.

Update by Dan Wilson

Work is well underway on site now and our contractors IWS have set up offices and storage cabins that will be on site for the duration of the work. We have also completed the excavation for the concrete slab on top of which will sit our green GRP kiosk housing the control panel for the new screen. Other work on site has included the excavation and duct laying for the new power cable between the access gate and the new kiosk.

Unfortunately we have also had a break in on site. Thieves broke into our storage cabin and stole a small portable generator and a disc cutter. We have increased security on site and remain vigilant.
