Bentonite Lake Liner Installation at Major Wetland Restoration Project

Works on a large wetland restoration project on behalf of Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Northamptonshire Wildlife Trust are well underway, which involve the installation of a bentonite clay liner to seal the banks of the lake feature, which is central to the project.

Work began in January 2016 to create new areas of wetland at Engine Farm. The existing  farmland has been remodelled and a series of linear ponds have been added, along with a network of dipwells to enable the water levels to be closely monitored.

Progress of the works can be viewed by following the links below:
