EEL PROTECTION SCHEME

River Waveney (Shipmeadow, nr. Beccles)

The Eel Regulation Compliance project at the River Waveney in Shipmeadow 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 Waveney.

Great day at the Waveney yesterday installing the new kiosk. It was another hot one but the work went really well. The photos show the crane manoeuvring the kiosk into place and its final position on the steel supporting framework.  It's been raised off the ground to keep it clear of floodwaters.
