Week Commencing 30th May 2016 - Saltmarsh

Here are the fruits of the first two days despite torrential rain!  Our contractor Andrew Stephenson and his team have done a great job.  The fencing is going in to protect the remaining fringing marsh at the toe of the wall either side of the sluice as a priority. The spurs are designed to push the small mud channels off the structure and into the central mudflat area to reduce erosion near the wall. The flows will not be deflected into adjacent marsh.
