Goughs Orchard Feed - Progress

In order to establish an improved water supply for the Wallbridge - Brimscombe section of the canal, a creative plan to siphon water into the canal at Goughs Orchard Lock is underway.  On site, there is an information panel with a detailed illustration of the engineering solution.

The pipe does not yet quite dip in the canal, but when working this innovative solution will provide a low energy solution to the water supply issue.  Water abstraction quantities are the subject of EA approval.
