A partnership project which will eliminate more than 117 tonnes of carbon, help drought and reduce flooding has reached completion.
The project, described as a “stage zero river reset”, will absorb more than 117 tonnes of carbon, help drought and reduce flood risk downstream. It involved infilling the river channel with soil to allow water to spill out and choose the direction it takes. This will create wetlands and smaller streams. Fallen timber has been added to slow the flow of the water leaving the site.
