Hickling Broad enhancement project

Hickling dredging Work has now started on a dredging project to improve navigation and recreation access at Hickling Broad. The work is complicated by the presence of the algae Prymnesium, which is of great concern to local anglers, and so best practice  dredging techniques are being adopted to minimise the risk of suspended sediment as well as stringent environmental controls adopted. Close monitoring is also ongoing.
