Rockland Broad - Update

Posted by Glyn Onione on 15/04/2011

Further to the successful installation of two value engineering solutions at Rockland Broad last month the AquaticEngineering / Ecosulis team returned to the site to plant up one of the installations with local provenance Norfolk Reeds (Phragmites communis / P. australis).

Reeds on the site had been visually obscuring views from the Rockland Broad RSPB bird hide and were collected and transferred to the new installations to complete the project.

No doubt the team will return to site to refine the installations over the coming months to develop two value-engineering erosion solutions.

Both installations will be jointly monitored by The Broads Authority, Ecosulis and AquaticEngineering over the next few years and the results made known through our respective websites.
