VIDEO: Tone and Parrett Dredging Completed on Time

The Environment Agency has recently announced that dredging works on the River Tone and Parrett, part of the Somerset Levels and Moors Flood Action Plan, have been completed.

During the last seven months of the project, crews successfully removed over 130,000m³ of silt from the two rivers.

The video shows the various methods employed by Land and Water to dredge the rivers and their specialist equipment used – which included amphibious excavators, excavators on pontoons, long reach excavators, tugs, barges and disposal of the dredging’s with tractors and agricultural trailers.

This was an extremely sensitive project that was successfully completed on time and within budget.

Land and Water will remain in the area for the next 2-3 months whilst they continue to demobilize equipment from the dredge and use the floating plant to remove any remaining ‘highspots’ of silt that the checking process uncovers.
