As part of “The Canch Environmental Improvement Scheme” Land & Water Services were contracted to carry out dredging & environmental enhancement works on the river Ryton running through the Canch park for Bassetlaw district council.
The enhancement works included dredging 335 metres of river bed to a depth of 1.2M and removing 400m3 of silts, the instruction from the client was to retain and use all the dredged silts on site as part of a solution to provide new vegetated ledges, which run the full length down one side of the river bank.
As part of the contract British waterways instructed Land & Water Services to repair the badly eroding banks and use as much retained silts as possible.
“Nicospan” was the chosen as the product to install at the water’s edge, it provides a high-quality and economical erosion control system and is designed specifically for protecting vertical banks. Easily installed, Nicospan is especially useful where access to the bank is limited and is an ideal low cost bank protection system that allows the use of dredged silts as fill.
As the sole British Waterways UK framework contractor for dredging Land & Water were contracted by British Waterway’s to ensure all winding holes on the Grand Union Leicester Line and Oxford canals were maintained to current safety standards.
These winding holes had silted up over time and so a dredging operation was carried out using Land & Water’s specialist narrow beam dredging equipment. British Waterway’s instruction was to repair the badly eroding banks and use as much retained silts as possible.
