Environment Agency’s Chief Tours Lincolnshire Scheme

The Environment Agency’s Chief Executive Sir James Bevan visited a restoration project near Grantham last week.

A project to restore vital habitat, boost river ecology and reduce flood risk has been praised by Sir James after he paid a visit to the site.

He accompanied Environment Agency officers to the site at Grange Farm near Grantham, where the river has been restored to a more natural form by bypassing a disused weir.

Under the project, a new winding 640 meter long channel has been created to re-connect the up- and downstream parts of the river.

Plus, the channel has been reconnected to the floodplain and its length has now been increased by almost a third, or about 150 meters.

Initial surveys have shown the improvements have already had an impact, as wild trout populations in the river have increased since the scheme’s completion.
