Arup were appointed to undertake a field and desk-based assessment of the River Bourne SAC to determine the current geomorphological condition of the river and develop a range of restoration options with reference to ecological habitat requirements. Sally acted as project manager and also undertook field surveys, data analysis and reporting to develop a restoration plan for the River Bourne. Several potential river restoration options were outlined following identification of low geomorphological habitat diversity, along with guidelines relating to how these options can be used to respond to specific problems.
As part of the Tregaron FAS Sally has undertaken a Geomorphological Assessment of the Afon Brennig, providing geomorphological advice and technical input into the detailed design of the scheme. Sally's inputs include the design of a low flow channel and variations in bed topography to provide improvements in ecological habitats and to ensure long term stability of the chosen scheme.
