Reports on two recently completed projects have been published and are available for download now.

The first of these was at Morcott Brook, on the northern edge of South Luffenham, Rutland and was designed to tackle the adverse effects of cattle grazing near the river banks. It involved bank reprofiling, provision of a new cattle drinker and riverside fencing. The full report can be downloaded here.

The second report deals with the reprofiling of a section of the Welland between Welham and Slawston. This project involved the installation of woody debris flow deflectors; channel pinching using woody debris and “folding back” existing vegetation to create new berms; weed cutting and dredging to improve flows, bed reduction to improve existing and create new pools; introduction of gravels to augment existing and create new riffles; bank toe protection using rock (rip‐rap); new cattle drinkers; new ford; riverside fencing; removal of selected trees to reduce scour; new tree planting. The full report can be downloaded here.
