Annual river maintenance

River Stour weed cuttingContractors for the Environment Agency are cutting back weeds along the both the Great Stour and the East Stour as part of the annual maintenance regime.

We reported last January on the major bankside cutback that was undertaken following a long period without any maintenance that had led to concerns regarding the capacity of the river to carry flood water. The EA said that that annual maintenance would be undertaken ahead of the winter period.
