On schedule, the essential maintenance work at Gravel Hill was completed. Local residents who regularly use this section of the Brook have commented favourably on the quality of the work. Thank you South Staffordshire District Council!
The red arrow shows the completed interlocked boulder work.
The blue arrow points to the recently constructed ‘overflow’ stream-the stone work has been implanted in such a way as to minimise the build up of sediment that would otherwise block the route of the secondary stream, thus forcing greater volumes of storm water along the main stream branch, with the consequent increased water flow applying greater pressure on the stream banks.
Contractors re-seeded the area of ground in the left of the photograph.
