Alt Crossens Pumping Stations to close

Jim Walker (Environment Agency) has stated that notice will be served on five satellite pumping stations by the end of next month. These include Rufford, Clay Brow, Boundary Brook, Kew, and Banks Marsh. Others may well follow. This will begin a two year countdown to closure of satellite pumping operations within the catchment.
The Environment Agency is to hold a series of engagement events for those most affected. The first will be for farmers and landowners and will be held at 7.00pm on Thursday 2nd July 2015 in the local NFU offices (
