To stop erosion occurring to an established island in the Discovery Centre’s two hectare lake.
Stage 1 of this regeneration programme involved protecting the island’s shingle beach, a potential Ternary, from destructive wave action. A series of floating islands was constructed with a mixture of aquatic vegetation. Because of the lakes high duck density,protection was offered in the form of bird deterrants.
Stage 2 is now underway to eradicate the algal bloom problem altogether and preserve the lake’s resident population of carp.
Floating islands - a single 8m x 4m metres and two 3.5m x 3.5m hexagonal islands.
Island erosion stalled and algal problem significantly reduced.
A superior solution with dual benefits - erosion control plus improved water quality.
