Lincolnshire Beach Management Scheme Starts Next Week

The Environment Agency’s Lincolnshire Beach Management (LBM) scheme gets underway on 13 May, reports the EA.

Over the course of the £7 million LBM scheme, the EA’s contractors will pump around 400,000 cubic meters of sand onto Lincolnshire’s beaches.

Mark Robinson, senior flood risk adviser for the Environment Agency, said: “While our annual beach nourishment works continue to be very effective, our long-term estimates suggest that it will not be sustainable to continue with just sand as a method of flood risk management in the future due to the impact of climate change.

This is why we have worked over a number of years to review our strategy for coastal flood risk management between Saltfleet and Gibraltar Point. We took a shortlist of options to public consultation in early 2019 and are currently finalizing our new draft strategy for coastal flood risk management over the next 100 years,” added Robinson.

Over the next six weeks, beaches at Trusthorpe, Mablethorpe, Ingoldmells, Trunch Lane, Wolla Bank, Chapel Six Marshes and Huttoft will be replenished.

The sand that is used to replenish the beaches is dredged from licensed offshore locations by a trailing suction hopper dredger HAM316

Twice a day – just before high tide – the dredger moves closer to the beach to pump approximately 5,000 cubic meters of sand onto the beach.

The two-day Congress includes the 7th International Forum of Dredging Companies and the 3rd Technical Conference “Modern Solutions for Hydraulic Engineering”.

Infrastructure development is among the real sources of Russia’s economy growth. Construction of port facilities and new hydraulic engineering structures on the country’s inland waterways constitute an essential part of all infrastructure projects. It is important to take into account the best international practices to implement these projects effectively.

The program of the Congress will be devoted to the latest technologies for dredging and hydraulic engineering works. Speakers and delegates will refer to real projects to discuss specifics features of dredging works, as well as dedicated fleet and equipment involved.
