Description

A detailed description of the engineering concept used to delay the closing moment of flood gates thereby improving both fish passage and tidal exchange. The system has been developed with a view to retro-fitting the device to existing structures offering a quick and relatively cheap solution.

Comments

Kelly Hughes has 10+ years experience in designing and installing engineering solutions to improve fish passage. Challenges have been tackled in both lowland and upland systems targeting a variety of species. Solving the issues relating to flood gates has been a rewarding exercise with global relevance.
