Detail

Habitat Creation Specialists from the Environment Agency have recently developed a new, patented self regulating tide-gate that can help to create or restore inter-tidal habitats behind flood embankments, which can provide a way to reduce/reverse the decline in this important habitat whilst maintaining the level of flood protection to people and property.
