Lake Erosion

Repairs to Lake banks that have eroded - lake erosion - Ponds UK Essex and SuffolkThere are a number of reasons why lake banks erode, some of which include fish stocks, wind, poor bank side materials, poor drainage, wildlife, livestock, general traffic and so on on.

It’s important that bank side vegetation is not destroyed or removed to a point where there are no longer roots as these roots hold the bank structure together and knit together all of the fine soils, which can easily wash away.

So if there’s been any damage to vegetation, there may be areas of risk on the bank in need of repair or preventative maintenance, to make sure the bank structure remains strong and can withstand anything else that might weaken it and to avoid it eventually collapsing. As with everything a little preventative care, can prevent a much bigger job further down the line.
