UK: Mill Pool Dredging Begins Next Month

A project to remove tonnes of silt from the Mill Pool at the Carrs Nature Reserve is underway with dredging work due to commence in mid to late August.

Mansfield District Council has started the process of dropping the water levels in the pool, in order to let the reed bed dry out as much as possible, prior to removal of the silt.

The Council has been advised by the Environment Agency that any wildlife, fish, ducks and birds will settle elsewhere if their habitat is disturbed, but this will not be harmful to them in any way.

The water levels of the Mill Pool will be monitored by Council staff twice daily, seven days a week, until a contractor has been appointed and work has commenced to clear the site. The silt will be stored on the nature reserve just off the flood plains and once dried, will be re-used for landscaping purposes.
