Lake redevelopment probably accounts for a good 60% of all the work undertaken by Heathland Aquatic Engineering throughout the UK and redveloping lakes is actually one of the most rewarding projects for us.
There are many reasons why a lake might require redevelopment but nine times out of ten it's due to poor maintenance and neglect.
Reasons why a lake might require redevelopment
- Bank erosion
- Bank collapse
- Bank undermining
- Leaking dam or bank
- Damaged or perished liner
- Structural changes
- Usage change
- Overflow systems
- The lake has silted up
Bank side Redevelopment on lakes
Bank redevelopment on lakes is something we are often asked to carry out at Heathland Aquatic Engineering. The structure of a lake's banks is extremely important as strong bank structure keeps a lake in good, healthy, stable condition. When banks erode or collapse in a lake it can cause all kinds of problems, so we offer a variety of fully comprehensive solutions to lake bank erosion, which suit various budgets and environments. Most of the methods we use can also be used for redeveloping the shape of the lake bank structure.
Due to an increase in rain over the past few years, managing water flow has become very difficult in some lakes, and often results in flooding and in some cases their fish stock has been lost because it's swept into rivers and other water courses. The correct overflow systems, control systems and diverts can normally cure most of these problems, ensuring that your lake doesn't become unusable and your fish stock stay in your lake. Our team of expert engineers will be able to calculate the correct methods and install the most appropriate water management solutions for your specific water control issues.
Other redevelopments of lakes might include merging several ponds or lakes together or renewing the lining system of your lake, where the old one has perished, or maybe you wish to add or remove islands and underwater debris, or add pontoons, walkways or platforms.
