River Prize Applicant: Saltburn Gill

Saltburn Gill and Skelton Beck are severely impacted by mine water discharging from a disused ironstone mine, and are classified as Moderate and Poor, respectively, under the WFD. The Coal Authority, in partnership with J N Bentley, has constructed a mine water treatment scheme at Saltburn Gill. The scheme has been implemented in two phases. Phase 1, completed in July 2013, is already providing visible benefits in treating the mine water. Upon completion of Phase 2 in 2015, it is anticipated that 99% of the iron will be removed from the mine water. >>
