FENS WETLANDS GET A BOOST FROM PUMP SUPPLIES

Posted: Monday 19th July 2010

Pump Supplies has completed a short-term hire project for the Environment Agency to reduce flood storage reservoir levels on the Ouse Washes in East Anglia to meet the target water levels in the Ouse Washes water level management plan.

Sub-contracted to Jackson Civil Engineering, which is constructing a new local pumping station to assist in managing water levels in future, Pump Supplies designed and installed a system which was capable of running 24/7 to pump 4000 litres per second over a three week period to lower the level over a 20 sq mile area.

Two Flygt C3501 pumps with 20 discharge pipe lengths and four Flygt 3300 44kW pumps with 12 discharge pipe lengths were utilised, taking water from the Ouse Washes and discharging into the tidal River Great Ouse.

The Ouse Washes support a diversity of plant, animal, bird and insects, many of which cannot be found anywhere else in lowland Britain. These include birds such as the black tailed godwit.
