The deepest section of the
ravine was filled and compacted. A trench was then dug to take 42 metres of 900mm
steel pipe. This was then buried and the water discharge and catchment areas
constructed. Finally the banks either side of the piped leat were graded using one
of the 20 tonne swing shovels, two of which were in constant use throughout the Leat
The Ravine caused by floodwater
completely washing out the original Leat. Dense Rhododendron cover has been cleared.
Filling in the deep Ravine prior to compacting and
piping with steel tubes.
