Land and Water Services is currently working on an exciting project at Peel Marina, located in the town of Peel, Isle of Man.
Peel Marina is fed by a river system and has been silted up over several years.
Whilst there has been some dredging work carried out, the Isle of Man government has been developing a solution that will remove 32,0000m³ of silt from the marina.
“We have worked in conjunction with Tony Gee Design to further develop a lagoon on the edge of to the city of Peel. This is capable of holding 16,000m³ of silt and is lined, containing a drainage system and an overflow pipe returning to Peel Marina,” said Land and Water in their latest release.
The Land and Water Services team is currently overseeing construction phase 1 of this project.
“In collaboration with local company Paul Carey and Sons, we are dredging materials from Peel Marina using our specialist road transportable pontoon, mounted with a long reach excavator. This material will be transported from Peel Marina to the lagoon by LAWS bespoke silt trailers, where it will be tipped and stacked by a long reach excavator.”
“When this project reaches completion in 2021/22, we will remove and dispose of the lagoon’s liner, returning the field to its original state,” concluded the company.
