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

Site establishment will begin at Waveney next week (from Monday 8th June). The welfare, storage and parking area will be set up in the field just to the west of the Pumping Station site at the top of Lock's Lane. At the river, preparations will be made for the piling works which we expect will start towards the end of June. More details will follow when the dates are confirmed.
