Bontuchel Fish Pass

Construction of masonry in a main river
Client: The Environment Agency

This contract involved the construction of stonemasonry in a 16ft-high weir on the River Clywedog at Bontuchel, Ruthin, North Wales to improve upstream river access for migrating adult fish, encouraging them to return and spawn in an area that was previously inaccessible to them.

Working as a subcontractor to William Hughes in an environmentally sensitive area of natural beauty, and supervised by the Environment Agency to EU standards, this project involved working in a difficult area with access problems and obvious health and safety restrictions whilst minimising any obstruction to local people.
