Project Description Summary

For this project, initially in 2002 a high-level breach was made before the RTE was done in 2005. The RTE involved 1 pipe : 0.6m diameter (under road, no gradient); 2 sill breaches: ~10m each (without pipe, site was flooded <10 times per year through these) . As part of this scheme there was some reshaping according to ecologist's design
