Survey carried out on silt levels in Boundary Brook Southport January 14th, 2014 admin Latest News Shares Comments Survey carried out on silt levels in Boundary Brook Southport Contractors to the Enviroment Agency were measuring the silt levels in Boundary Brook, Kew, Southport, this afternoon (Tuesday 14th January 2014). The silt levels were last measured in Boundary Brook backin 2008. Water management is complex in the Lower Alt and the Crossens pumped drainage catchment. The area is low lying and requires considerable intervention to manage water and silt levels. The area is rural with centres of population at Formby, Southport, Banks and Maghull at risk from flooding. The Environment Agency currently operates the two main pumping stations at Altmouth and Crossens at the tidal outfalls and a number of satellite pumping stations providing land drainage to rural areas. If silt levels are high then there is danger of flooding. Results of today’s survey can be found on the Enviroment website in the near future.
