FISH PASS DESIGN

PROJECT 2 |

COAL AUTHORITY WEIR DESIGN AND

CONSTRUCTION

LOCATION: Nentberry, River Nent

CLIENT: J N Bentley

In attempting to minimise the environmental legacy of

mining operations in the catchment, the Coal Authority

appointed JN Bentley to design and build a series of check

weirs on the River Nent. The aim was to promote the inchannel settlement

of potentially contaminated sediments

with the objective of facilitating their dredging and removal

from the river system in the future.

WHAT WE DID

• Hydraulic modelling

• Detailed hydraulic design of the solution.

BENEFITS TO THE CLIENT

• Secured Environment Agency approval for the

technical fish pass solution within four weeks

of appointment

• A technically robust solution in keeping with the

upper catchment, rural setting of the site.

relevant design and approval processes, to ensure an efficient transition from
