Pond Clearance

Client: Birmingham Wildlife Trust

Location: Birmingham

Service: Desilting

Project Outline:

Desilting and pond clearance work for Birmingham Wildlife Trust in order to improve the view, and the wildlife habitat areas.

Desilting works on ditches & ponds

The Birmingham & Black Country Wildlife Trust had a site with a large population of Great Crested Newts and wanted to improve the wetland habitat for them.

JPR Environmental undertook some pond clearance for the trust. In addition to desilting a number of ponds and ditches, we also created a new pond, lined with bentonite liner, for the newts. 

The project was funded by Higher Level Stewardship funds (HLS).
