TF5800 : Diversion Sluice

3 km from Denver, Norfolk, Great Britain

Diversion Sluice
Diversion Sluice
The Diversion Sluice at Denver allows water to flow from the Ely Ouse into the Cut Off Channel. The water then flows south along the Cut Off Channel and eventually into the reservoirs of Essex as part of the Ely Ouse to Essex Transfer Scheme (EOETS).
Ely Ouse to Essex Transfer Scheme
The Ely Ouse to Essex Transfer Scheme is a system that moves excess water from the Fens to supply reservoirs in Essex.

Water is diverted from the Ely Ouse at Denver (TF5800 into the Cut Off Channel. It flows south along here to Blackdyke (TL6988), where it runs into an underground tunnel to Kennett. At Kennett (TL7068) it's pumped up into a shallower pipeline to Kirtling Green (TL6756), where it's pumped into Kirtling Brook.

From Kirtling Brook, the water joins the River Stour from which it is eventually abstracted into Hanningfield (TQ7398) and Abberton (TL9718) reservoirs.

The scheme is currently (2011) being enhanced to allow the transfer of more water into an enlarged Abberton Reservoir. For more details, see LinkExternal link.
