Just to keep the members and committee up to date on the progress.
You will see from the pictures that the Turbine / Generator Hut is now in place although,as the shed was locked I couldn’t ascertain whether the turbine is in situ’. While at the headwaters the shuttering is off the Dam and the piping is in place and ready to be connected.
The company have thought better of running the pipe overground, so except for a small bit here and there it has been buried and they have followed the line of the F.C. road.
There’s also a smaller pipe which collects water from one of the larger feeder burns to be seen where it crosses the river and where it enters the shed .
The area is in a bit of a mess at the moment but you wont notice in a few years.
As far as I can see, all this work done shouldn’t affect fishing in the river, as it is well above where any angling takes place.
Tight Lines to all
