Saltmarsh habitat replenishment report published by The Crown Estate

The Crown Estate has published a report on phase II of the project to replenish the saltmarsh habitat behind the breakwaters at Lymington Harbour.  The habitat replenishment scheme was designed to pump sediment dredged from the Yacht Haven during maintenance activities, up onto the existing saltmarsh, in an attempt to raise the mud levels.  After phase II it is estimated that over approximately 50% of the site sediment levels have reached those of the surrounding marsh.  The replenishment scheme was carried out by Black and Veatch for the Lymington Harbour Commissioners and the full report on phase II, prepared by Stuart Lowe of MarineSpace Ltd, can be read by clicking on this link.
