Wetland, River and Sediment Management Workshop

frog environmental and cbec eco-engineering supported Salix to deliver our first specialist wetland, river and sediment management training event.

It was exceptionally well attended by a variety of organisations including environmental practitioners, contractors, regulators, academics and hangeronerers (you know who you are Steve :o)), creating a great atmosphere.

Talks ranged from scientific research on BioHaven floating wetlands and rock mattresses, using xylit biochar fibre in water quality improvement and as a new aquatic plant growing medium, to large river and lake restoration using pump dredging to create wetlands and large woody debris to naturalise and protect our rivers, erosion control and the creation of SuDS as well as launching a new silt control technology onto the UK market.

Many of the talks can now be viewed online:

It was such a success that we have decided to repeat the workshop next year, inviting more presenters and showcasing event more new technology as well as expanding on the practical demonstrations.
