New pipeline by Kirtling Brook
New pipeline by Kirtling Brook
The Kirtling Brook has been used as part of a route to move excess water from the River Ouse near Feltwell in Norfolk to Abberton Reservoir to supply the more inhabited area of Essex. More details of the new pipeline scheme are at TL6755 : Construction Work.
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.
