Dredging works ongoing

Locke Park Lake had become silted to the point that it could no longer be safely used for boating.

Salix were employed as main contractor to desilt the lake, construct a new section of weir and a gabion basket silt trap at the lake inlet.

The silt was transported in sealed lorries to another council owned amenity site for reuse as a landscaping medium.

The lake was slowly de-watered and over-pumped to prevent any downstream migration of silts into the adjacent nature reserve.

A gabion basket silt trap and bypass channel was created at the head of the lake and a drop board weir constructed at the outlet to help with the long term management of the lake.
