Clevedon Marine Lake to be drained
PUBLISHED: 17:00 25 February 2020
Clevedon Marine Lake is to be drained on Saturday, February 29.
The process to remove 750 tonnes of silt and mud, which is 2 feet high in some places, will start on March 2.
This is a part of an annual programme to dredge the lakebed each October and March, costing £7,500 a year.
The mud clearance in the main lake is done annually to minimise build-up.
The lake will be refilled on March 7.
Six new concrete benches, costing more than £3,000, will be installed while the lake is closed.
Volunteers are welcome to attend the litter-pick event planned by Marine Lake from February 29 to March 6 to help clear waste.
