Historic modifications and urbanisation have altered channels, subsequently impacting upon habitats and biodiversity.
Aquamaintain Ltd are experienced in removing manmade structures such as weirs, culverts, concrete channels and embankments. We then look to replace them with natural sinuous channels that are in keeping with the rivers fundamental characteristics. Re-naturalisation benefits wildlife and the wider river catchment as a whole.
In the past channels have often been dredged and over widened to detrimental effect. We can propose and implement bio-engineering techniques, such as gravel augmentation and channel narrowing, to reverse the adverse effects of yesteryear and breath new life into river systems.
