Assessment of potential geomorphological impacts from a culvert extension / weir removal. Geomorphological assessment undertaken by BL along approx. 3km reach to describe geomorphological features and function. Report pwritten by BL to set out baseline, geology, soils, landform and geomorphology and potenial effects/mitigation.
BL undertook detailed peat surveys across a lowland basin to understand the geomorphological history of the site to inform an understanding of current hydrogeological function and assess potential effects from deep excavations on the basin edge. The baseline understanding and impact assessment was accepted by NRW.
BL undertook a detailed geomorphological study to assess potential impacts of increased abstraction for a hydro power scheme. Channel processes and sediment sources/sinks were mapped to assess impacts to WFD status and implications for rare bryophytes along the channel. Report and outcomes accepted by NRW.
