Environment Agency to work on River Drone in January

Environment Agency to work on River Drone in January

Tue, 12 Dec 2017 12:22 by Jo Mitchell

The Environment Agency will shortly be starting a winter programme of works which was highlighted during previous inspections of the River Drone throughout the Dronfield and Unstone catchment.

The River Drone has a number of sections where dead, leaning or fallen trees are currently, or have the future potential, to cause a blockage within the watercourse. Any blockages have the potential to create conveyance issues within the channel and can cause localised flooding. More »

The work is essential to ensure that the local area is not impacted by flooding and to ensure that the Drone can flow without being impeded.

The watercourse has been surveyed and scoped by Environment Agency staff, independent Ecology consultants from BL Ecology Ltd and contractors from an experienced arborist company. The comments of both consultants have been recorded and the aim of the project is to ensure conveyance within the river is improved but at the same time to ensure that there is no substantial loss of habitat.

The work is due to start week commencing 2nd January 2018 and will take approximately 4-5 weeks. Further information is available by contacting the Environment Agency at enquiries@environment-agency.gov.uk. » Less
