Watercourse Management

Working with the Environment Agency for many years helping reduce the risk of flooding.

We’ve been carrying out flood defence work and vegetation maintenance for over 45 years, so we have a considerable bank of knowledge and experience to call on in all aspects of watercourse maintenance and have been working with the Environment Agency for many years helping to reduce the risk of flooding.

Works we undertake include:
• Embankment Grass Cutting
• River bed clearance works
• Vegetation Removal
• Control of invasive species, e.g. Japanese Knotweed, Giant Hogweed and Himalayan Balsam
• Debris clearance and removal
• Piling & Waling, Revetment works
• Habitat Directives & Conservation
• Dredging & de-silting
• Bank repairs & culvert works

We are an approved Government Framework Contractor, Registered Waste Transfer carrier and we only undertake work where it is:
• Environmentally sustainable and acceptable
• Technically sound


Watercourse maintenance plays an essential part of flood prevention and without regular maintenance, the threat of flooding increases and reduces the capacity of a watercourse.

It is essential to keep the water channels free from blockages as these will increase the risk of flooding where the watercourse may only be a single channel in built up or urban areas.

If you would like to speak to us in more detail about your Watercourse Maintenance requirements please contact us.
