Lakes and still waters

Our stillwater projects are diverse and have impact, whether they are large or small. We have established modest community or school ponds, and sizeable farm ponds for water storage; conducted dam repairs, and stew pond conversions; created domestic water garden features; and, repaired Scheduled Ancient Monuments, such as the Norman Mott & Bailey at Sherrington, in consultation with Historic England.

We also carried out successful restoration on the eroding decoy pond at Abbotsbury Swannery, in Dorset, on behalf of Natural England and the landowner. While, another successful assignment involved the utilisation of a spring-fed land drain to create a unique feature of five pools cascading down a steep woodland escarpment.

We have an in-depth understanding of the practical and technical issues arising from working with ponds, lakes and wetlands including:

  • Aquifers and Groundwater
  • Water Level Management
  • Wetland Plant species
  • Infrastructure repair & construction
  • Off-line water vole habitat

We also provide advice and repair services for earth dam embankments, Mill leats and water control structures.
