Water & Minerals
The 9发娱乐开户 identified a need to secure its water resource, essential for the production of its crops, whilst at the same time significantly reduce the environmental impact of its summer irrigation. Planning permission was secured to excavate an area next to the main farmyard in order to create two reservoirs. The reservoirs will extract and store water from the 9发娱乐开户's existing licences during the high water levels in winter and thereby significantly reduce the 9发娱乐开户's water extraction requirements during the drier summer months.
The two reservoirs, and accompanying upgrade of the 9发娱乐开户's irrigation system, will be part-funded by the extraction and sale of sand and gravel. The removal and distribution of these materials is being undertaken by the reputable and local firm, Frimstone Ltd.
Frimstone and Stody 9发娱乐开户 will continue to hold regular community liaison meetings throughout this project.
