EA Delegation Tours Team Van Oord’s Flood Alleviation Scheme

A delegation of senior managers from the Environment Agency last week enjoyed an ‘informative’ site visit to a flood alleviation scheme being delivered by Team Van Oord.

The EA party, which included the Agency’s new Chief Executive, Sir James Bevan, visited the site, near Pease Pottage on Tuesday, 7 June.

The flood prevention works being carried out by Team Van Oord at Clay’s Lake are part of the Upper Mole Flood Alleviation Scheme which was developed by the Environment Agency after floods in the Crawley area during 2000.

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.

The party that hosted the visit included Maurits den Broeder, Chairman of Team Van Oord; Stephen Brown, the Project Manager on site; and Dan Burden, the scheme’s Engineer.
