Mereway Weir lowering test report published

The Environment Agency has published a report on the test lowering of Mereway Weir at Kneller Park, Twickenham. The investigation showed that a change in the split of water down the Duke of Northumberland River (DNR) and River Crane significantly improved flow in the Crane without adversely affecting the DNR. The report recommends that this flow split between the two rivers should be maintained.

Links to the report and executive summary can be found in the Lower River Crane Flow Improvements section on the Current Projects page.
