Edge enhancements – Studio Bay, Hickling Broad

The enhancement project at Hickling Broad involves using sediment dredged from the central channel to recreate lost habitat at the edge of the broad to improve ecology.

This short clip shows dredged sediment being pumped behind a retaining barrier in order to repair eroded edges.

In time the reclaimed fringe of Studio Bay will repopulate with reed and sedge preventing further degradation.
