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

Construction works at the river intake are complete, the attached photos show the installation just prior to the completion of the safety fencing at the river's edge. There are some minor works to complete at the pumping station at the top of Locks Lane but these should not cause any disruption in the local area and should be no more noticeable than our normal operational or maintenance checks. Thanks to everyone for your patience during the works and all the best for a healthy and happy 2021.
