Purton Weir Refurbishment

Edenvale Young were commissioned to assess the scour caused by a weir structure controlling discharge from the Gloucester and Sharpness canal to the River Severn at Purton.

Salt marsh erosion was being caused by a weir installed in 2006. The design of a replacement structure to dissipate energy and prevent the erosion of the salt marshes within a SSSI was undertaken by Edenvale Young.
