Ifield Mill Pond

Waterman was appointed by Crawley Borough Council to investigate and develop improvements to Ifield Mill Pond, and manage the Early Contractor Involvement stage of the Scheme leading onto the Planning and Construction stage.

Following a Reservoir Act Section 10 inspection Waterman made various recommendations including:

  • Construct a replacement dam structure adjacent to the existing Ifield Mill Pond Dam
  • Provide additional control structures to provide capacity to pass the Probable Maximum Flood (PMF) via a spillway.
  • Carry out widespread dredging of the lakes to improve the water quality and amenity value, including disposal off site and within the site.

Waterman worked with the ECI Contractor developing proposals and solutions for the new Dam construction and the major desilting works.

Dam works: Carried out detailed Ground Investigation, Geotechnical and stability modelling, feasibility of utilising borrow pits and detailed hydraulic modelling.

De-silting: Developed options for de-silting utilising specialist plant and processes including drying and settlement lagoons, pumping, silt pushers, and dewatering and excavation in the dry. Disposal options include reuse on site in ‘geotubes’ and disposal to agricultural land as soil improver.
