Dredging Moves Forward on Rivers Parrett and Tone

Dredging is part of the flood action plan and the Environment Agency is progressing with a project to dredge 8 km of the Rivers Parrett and Tone.

The plan includes a range of other options for improving the area’s flood resilience in the long term, such as maintenance, land management and community and business resilience.

We have 8 gangs working. On the River Parrett there is an amphibious excavator working at the downstream extent of the dredge, and 2 floating teams,” stated Environment Agency – Wessex.

A land based excavator is working on the Moorland access track at Coates Farm. On the River Tone an amphibious excavator is working under Athelney Road Bridge and 3 land based excavators are dredging.

We have so far removed approximately 113,000m³ of silt. We have 1km of river (2km of total river bank length) left to dredge and remain on program to complete work by the end of October,” they announced.
