Wave dam in summer

 

Previous posts have described a project we are working on in Lanarkshire, which involves the development and testing of new forms of peat drain damming.  The new method, Wave Damming, is really interesting because it is so cheap to deploy.  We returned recently, in a severe drought, to see how the restoration trial sites have responded to damming in the current dry weather.  In essence, the sites are still soaking – an ideal outcome at this stage!
