IOSH Delegation Visits Team Van Oord Project Site

Around 40 members of the IOSH (Institution of Occupational Safety and Health) South Downs Branch recently paid a visit to a flood alleviation scheme being carried out by Team Van Oord.

The visit was to the Clay’s Lake site, near Pease Pottage, where flood prevention works are being carried out as part of the Upper Mole Flood Alleviation Scheme which was developed by the Environment Agency after floods in the Crawley area during 2000.

The Clay’s Lake visit was hosted by Terry Gretton, Team Van Oord’s Site Manager for the scheme, who said: “We were asked if the IOSH South Downs Branch could hold its AGM at Clay’s Lake, to be followed by a site walk. We were only expecting a dozen or so people to turn up but we ended up with around 40.”

Although nothing was happening on site due to the winter shutdown, they all left very pleased and with a good understanding of the work we are undertaking,” Gretton said.

The works comprise the removal of an existing dam which is being replaced with a larger dam. This will increase the lake’s capacity from 10,000 cubic meters to nearly 400,000 cubic meters, thereby reducing the risk of flood to more than 280 homes in the area, and to Gatwick Airport.
