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 at site has now been completed and the new screen is functioning well to protect eels, the environment we work in and provide screened water to support our Abberton reservoir. As a reminder, this project was driven by our commitment to enhancing the biodiversity value of the rivers we abstract from and comply with the assocaited legislation, in this instance, the Eel Regulation (2009). Lets hope that this project contributes to an increase in the number of eel in the River Stour.  

May we take this opportuninty to thank the residents of Brantham for their understanding and patience through the extended construction period.
