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.

Covid-19 Update:

Following the latest government advice, projects are currently under review to ensure that only essential works are carried out. As the site works have not yet commenced for this project there are no immediate impacts.  We will continue working on plans and designs but it is likely that the start on site will be delayed. Further updates will be issued when more information is available.
