They plan to develop the River Leat the feeder stream — the tributary that empties in to the River Cole into a long lake. Any non-commercial or educational use must be acknowledged appropriately. The downstream channel benefited greatly from the restoration measures, but the new upstream course was not fenced off from cattle and has therefore little riparian vegetation. For practical reasons later and rebuilt mills were sited in riverside meadows and fed by leats. Monitoring Pre-restoration monitoring Before restoration started, several indicators were monitored to see what the reference situation is for post-restoration monitoring.
The local community of a nearby village was not involved in the project. Contact person within the organization River Restoration Centre Dr. Roughly weekly, the fish are counted out of the pond. Specific objectives There were no specific goals for indicators in this project. Marginal emergent plant species richness increased significantly, but submerged aquatic plants showed a less immediate effect. Rotyford on Yardley Green Road was a crossing of necessity, but a bad one in clay - its name seems to mean 'slimy, slippery' - whereas the others had firm gravel beds. The full results can be found in the final report: The effects of river restoration on the R.

A portion of the salmon releases receive coded wire tags in addition to the fin-clip to help fisheries managers evaluate catch and survival rates and project results. This leads to happier locals as their river is being taken care of. About 1860 Cole flow diverted down race, old channel disused.

The riverside walk continues as the past the site of Robin Hood Lane ford, across Cotterills Meadow which has been Colebank Playing Field for the last ninety years until it reaches the , Sarehole Mill at. This new smaller channel encourages beneficial flood storage on the fields and allows fish to pass the mill weir. The cross-sectional area was considerably smaller and less deep. Two new species were found in the restored Cole, one stonefly Leuctra geniculata and a caddis fly Athripsodes albifrons Fish biomass and density returned to pre-restoration levels, however the highest measured biomasses and densities were found just downstream of the restored reach. It is now a museum and is the only surviving water mill in the City's ownership.
The geographic source of the Amazon River in Mt. Due to its importance as a demonstration project, further monitoring been carried out by Master and PhD students. The number of natural in-channel features like riffles had increased after restoration. The restoration of the River Cole was initiated in July 1995. Downstream of the mill, the bed was raised and the channel was made smaller. The Waterside Care group run regular litter clean ups as well as taking part in the management of vegetation and other aspects of the wildlife reserve.

The ancient course of the River Cole has been able to be recreated. Both fords then went out of use. Prior to restoration, flooding in the Cole was infrequent, but after restoration 10% of the floodplain is influenced by the more regular flooding regime of 17 days per year. The Cole is normally shallow, except where weirs maintain an artificial depth. Holden Mill Trail and Pump Station Trail are closed until further notice.
Its source is very near the main watershed of Midland England : tributaries are few and very short except in the lower reaches, so the Cole is only a small stream. This is due to the? The meanders also cause more regular? Present brick wain bridge 1810. The specific name for a loop in a river is a 'meander'. The Cole is normally shallow, except where weirs maintain an artificial depth. The economic benefits of the restoration over a 25 year period was estimated to range from £38,000 to £347,000, mostly from recreation and conservation benefits. In the heavy rains of late July 2007 the Cole burst its banks and flooded the Covingham area of Swindon and Covingham Drive immediately to the south of the river.

Until the late 1700s, the mill was fed by a small artificial channel carrying water from the Cole, but by 1818 the mill leat had been largely extended to take the entire flow of the Cole, and most of the old river course filled in. The number of natural in-channel features, such as pools and riffles, increased after restoration. Due to damage from Hurricane Florence, some bridges have sustained damages, making a few trails impassable. The tailrace from Hay Mill was spanned by a small humped bridge, which was demolished after waterpower was discontinued at the mill in 1865.
