Temporary dam completed

The temporary sheet metal dam at Model Boating Pond has now been completed and the crane, which was used to install it, will be leaving the Heath on Friday.

The water from the southern end of the pond will now be drained down to allow the construction of the raised dam. During this process, a fish rescue operation will take place to move fish from the southern end of the pond, into the remaining area. When the water has been drained, the silt from the bottom of the pond will be moved with excavators and placed within the work compound to dry out, before being put into the borrow pits after the clay has been removed.
