Weir on it!

The task in hand...specialist surveyor below Bridgend Weir, Lochwinnoch

The Clyde River Foundation is participating in a national barrier assessment project being co-ordinated by Rivers and Fisheries Trusts Scotland (RAFTS) and financed by SEPA’s Water Restoration Fund.

The Foundation’s scientific information is being combined with a site visit by surveyors and engineers from Envirocentre to assess the current state of fish passage and the prospects for its improvement at each of four weirs in the first phase of the project.  The weirs assessed in 2011 were on the Garrel Burn at Kilsyth, two on the River Gryffe downstream of Bridge of Weir, and at Bridgend on the River Calder, upstream of Lochwinnoch (pictured).
