Fish Pass & Hydro Work Takes Shape

Work to the fish pass and hydro projects at Quarry Bank are progressing. The first pour of concrete on site took place last week following the site being flooded due to river levels coming up following heavy rain.

Preparing for the arrival of the concrete wagon.
The River came up and swamped the site leading to pumping out and desludging the area ready for the arrival of the concrete

Steel reinforcing will be used to strengthen the concrete. When up and running, the hydro will produce around 55% of the mills power requirement. The fish pass will enable salmon and trout to access the further reaches of the Bollin and Dean rivers.
