Kingcombe have been busy over the past 6 months de-silting in various locations over the South West including a project near Dorchester.
Working with the Environment Agency, we carefully reinstated a section of River back to its original condition.
Before the works started, an ecologist surveyed the area which determined when the work could take place and agreed the working methods.
A pre-start meeting took place to agree access, parking and emergency procedures.
Prior to starting, a detailed site specific inspection, environmental and site risk assessment and methodology were completed.
During the works
Using a hydraulic excavator and a dumper, the silt and vegetation was removed from the river to a stockpile for later disposal.
And it doesn’t stop there for 2016! This month, one of our site teams will be busy right up to Christmas de-silting a private lake near Warminster.
De-silting has been one of Kingcombe’s core activates for nearly 30 years and it gives us great pleasure to return a lake/pond/river or reservoir back to its original beauty.
Please contact us if you require further information on de-silting.
