Wetland works grab the headlines
A project that our teams have been involved in has featured in the newspaper in recent weeks! Works on the Pudding Norton wetland – which is located on the headwaters to the River Wensum have seen our teams introducing new meanders to the river and creating new habitats for wildlife to thrive amongst. The works have seen the river being reconnected with the surrounding flood plain.
Critically the works have also been done to improve water quality feeding into the Wensum with the new wetland filtering out nutrients and pollution which would have otherwise ended up in the protected river Wensum – which is a rare chalk stream. There are only just over 200 chalk stream in the whole world with their crystal clear waters providing a unique habitat for wildlife and flora/fauna to exist within.
