The River Teme Restoration VIDEO
Salix – specialized in spillway and shoreline protection, silt removal (lake desilting/dredging), wetland ecological enhancement and habitat creation schemes – was the lead designer and contractor behind the River Teme Restoration Project.
During the project, the company undertook some extreme erosion control using its shear stress turf, rock mattresses and extremely skillful team.
The toe of the eroded bank was stabilized with a graded rip rap below average water level and then extensive soft/bioengineering works above. The project represents one of the largest riverbank repair works ever undertaken by National Grid.
