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 to construct the concrete base and GRP (Glass Reinforced Plastic) kiosk has been completed site successfully. We have also installed the new MCC (Motor Control Centre) within the new kiosk that will control the new rotating band screen. We will shortly be taking delivery of the new eel screen onto site and installing this onto the river front. The work so far has been blessed with good weather that has enabled us to make good progress and keep the local roads clear of mud and debris, reducing our impact on residents and other stakeholders.
