Japanese Knotweed – River Diversion

Japanese Knotweed Ltd were contacted by a coal authority who were seeking professional knotweed removal services. The coal authority enlisted our expertise to remove a river bank which contained Japanese knotweed. The bank needed to be removed in order to divert a stream which runs through the site of an old mine near Barnsley, South Yorkshire.

The stream was being used to channel contaminated ground water to a settlement pond and reed filtration beds, to remove contaminants. A recent upwelling from the disused mine had emerged from the stream bed, by-passing the filtration and resulting in the choking of the reed beds.

After removal of the knotweed-infested existing riverbank, new banks were then to be shaped and constructed, and a concrete chamber removed. The slope of the bank by the stream was steep to moderate, and excavation of the knotweed had to be done with the utmost care and attention to Health and Safety. No problem for our experienced operations team, and the excavation work was completed with the minimum of fuss, with the removed contaminated spoil taken away from site to an approved landfill.

Japanese Knotweed Ltd operates nationwide, and are ready to receive your enquiries and undertake site inspections, and provide quotations on request.
