River Brue Vegetation Maintenance

Working for the Somerset Drainage Boards consortium on behalf of the SRA, long reach equipment was brought in to help maintain a 3km stretch of the River Brue and mitigate flood risk with an important vegetation management programme involving the removal of tree branches and any vegetation from within this flood risk zone of the river.

Work was carried out from a floating platform - the vegetation cut using powered tools, transported by barge and offloaded by a 15-tonne long reach excavator with rotating grab.  Working closely with the client team, with regular monitoring of ecology and wildlife issues, together with heavy tidal flows and a flood control gate were successfully managed.
