River Restoration Training
On August 10th, we joined the Wild Trout Trust in the River Shep (Cambridgeshire) to deliver a range of river restoration techniques including:
-Introducing flow deflectors to encourage scouring of the river bed to reduce silt build up.
-Introducing woody vegetation ledges (see picture) to encourage marginal plant growth, and to narrow the river channel. This will work to energise the river during the low-flow summer months, and will discourage silt build up.
