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.

Update by Nicola Wigington

The Waveney site has given the construction team some challenges since Christmas with the severe flooding but the installation has held up really well and has continued to work all the way through. The old drum screens have been removed so the bulk of the construction works are done. There are new covers to be installed over the chamber where the old screens were removed and some minor works at the river as well as training of our Operatives, so you will continue to see the team on site at times over the next few weeks.
