Client contacted ADC
ADC were contacted by Ian Watts the technical engineer/team leader for Black Sluice Internal Drainage Board (BSIDB) to de-sludge a 250m meter section of Fenland Dyke on the outskirts of Boston in Lincolnshire. BSIDB is responsible for 34 pumping stations and the maintenance of 500 miles of watercourses within the area.
he problem: 250m Fenland Dyke with limited access
The 250m section had limited access and was unable to be cleaned by conventional means. Also the scale and cost of the operation to remove the wet sludge with many jet vac journeys to specifically designated landfill sites was too big.
The project solution: De-watering onsite.
Pre-project: Survey and planning
ADC’s experienced management carried out an extensive survey and put together a project plan
