Students Return to Clay’s Lake for Final Annual Visit

Students from the University of Brighton have paid a last visit to the Clay’s Lake Flood Alleviation Scheme in West Sussex, where works are almost complete.

The flood storage reservoir works at Clay’s Lake are being carried out by Mackley working as part of Team Van Oord and on behalf of the Environment Agency.

The Clay’s Lake project forms part of the Upper Mole Flood Alleviation Scheme which was developed by the Environment Agency after floods in the Crawley area during 2000.

When complete, the scheme will reduce the risk of flooding to more than 280 homes in the Maidenbower area, the London to Brighton rail link and to Gatwick Airport.

2018 is the fourth consecutive year that students from the University of Brighton have visited the site. 40 students participated in the final visit on 29 October, which comprised a tour of the site followed by a presentation from Dan Burden, Site Manager.

The works at Clay’s Lake will be complete in February 2019.
