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 project is progressing well and on schedule. This week the team have been working on preparatory groundworks.  Handrailing on the bridge over New Dyke has been completed (see photo) and some additional ducting has been installed up to the location of the new kiosk. The piling works were originally planned for this week but have been rescheduled due to subcontractor availability so it's now due to be done in the week beginning Monday 13th July.
