19/06/08 – Environment Agency to remove top grill on Dorcan Brook
While at the Swindon Flood Fair yesterday I spoke with the Environment Agency who informed me that following the evaluation work that was carried out last week they have made the decision to remove the trash screen on the Dorcan Brook weir.
They believe this will make a huge improvement to the area. Currently they do not have a date when this will happen as some addition planning work is needed looking at the bank levels. However I get the indication we are only looking at a few months.
This is fantastic news and as soon as I hear a date for removal I will post it here.
