Update for Island work and stockpond

June 27th, 2010 Comments off

Work has continued through the week and into the weekend. The stockpond is taking shape nicely, with a depth of approx 5ft attained. Work is now commencing on using the spoil to bank up and build up the surround to the pond. Once levelled out the liner will be fitted, and the fence erected around the perimeter.

The work to build up the defences of the island has continued at a pace this week. With most of the digging and planting complete on the island, the heavy machinery was removed on a large raft. There remains some finishing off to be completed and a little tidying up after that.

Busy, Busy, Busy

Phew, it has been a warm week at the lake, with temps upto 28-29 c. It has also been an incredibly busy week at the lake. There has been a team of contractors working on the island to shore up the defences last done by the EA. As we all know the weather and winds especially up here soon made short work of the last feeble attempt. I am sure by the efforts the current team have been putting in this attempt will both improve the look of the island but more importantly ensure that no more erosion occurs.

The work has involved building a stout lattice fence around the island itself to help break impact of waves, digging out a trench around the inside of the fence and plant metal cages weighted down with stones, and filled with new plants, reeds etc. This will help knit the earth together as the roots grow further down.
