Our CCTV and HPWJ teams worked hard to clear a heavily silted culvert in Gotham, Nottinghamshire, helping to relieve pressure on the local drainage system and to assist in minimising the risk of flooding in the future. The images below show a clear before and after of the removal of the silt so now water can flow freely.

Completion of Works on the River Leen

Works were completed on the River Leen, after our site team removed over 130 tonnes of solid waste from the twin siphonic culverts pictured below. The size of the culverts required both man entry and rescue teams to ensure that the works were completed efficiently and safely. These works included the safe relocation of fish within the culvert prior to the works commencing. The completed works will greatly reduce the flooding risk of this critical water course.
