River Restoration: River Gade
The client: Affinity Water
The site: River Gade, Piccotts End
The brief: Produce a plan for improving the banks of the River Gade, north of Hemel Hempstead.
Our solution: In order to sufficiently map the best places for improving the banks our Ecologist and Environmental Consultant calculated the cross-sectional area of the river by measuring the channel width and depth.
The result: This information was used to populate a plan identifying the existing cross sections and proposed cross sections to improve the banks.
