Re-naturalising Tad Brook

South Staffs Water has started a £19,000-scheme to improve biodiversity, whilst reducing diffuse pollution along Tad Brook near Blithfield Reservoir.

Supported by the National Environment Programme fund from the Environment Agency, the scheme will divert the existing Tad Brook from its current course, which is very straight, so that it meanders and creates an improved habitat for otters, brown trout and invertebrates.

The work involves felling the old non-native trees, which have been badly damaged by squirrels, and creating a new course for the brook, meeting up with the drainage from the surrounding fields. Once the work is completed, native willow and alder trees will be planted to create a new wet woodland, complimenting the biodiversity of the brook.

Visit the South Staffs web pages for full details and video.
