Leachate Lagoon... Leachate La-Gone

With the wet weather holding off until late November and the recent dry period we have managed to make more progress than expected. We have continued to gain better control over the site’s leachate production.  

Why do Engineers enjoy watching steelwork come down? Because it is Riveting

Our biggest and most noticable difference on site in the last six months is that the large brickshed has slowly disappeared. Works began in September and the demoltion of the building is almost complete.

How Do I Know if it is A Great Crested Newt?

As you will have seen over the last few months, the roads in the Cranleigh area have been deteriorating rapidly due to the wet and icy winter and bad drainage. When these conditions,

Springing into Action

Over the last few months we have been steadily clearing woodland around the biggest contaminated waterbodies onsite. Over 1 hectare of land has been cleared by our small tree removal team in preparation for the oncoming trapping season.

Over the winter our team has been working incredibly hard to further progress the site.

Summer Fun

Over the summer much of our work will focus on enhancing some of the translocation ponds onsite. We will be removing some of the fast-growing species, including Bulrush and Willow to open the ponds and make them more ecologically diverse.

Keeping it Clean

We have undertaken several experiments on leachate treatment in consultation with Surrey Uni and the EA.
