The Environment Agency have updated their proposals for mine water treatment, particularly at Nentsberry and Nenthead. Two public meetings are planned for 31st October and 1st November 2016. Please go to the meetings and express your views.
Work is also continuing at BarneycraigMine in West Allendale.

The meeting held on 31st October was the first step in a process of consultation. Detailed information is to be made available via a website. I will post a link when that becomes available.

Further consultation meetings have been held at Nenthead and Nenthall about the Caplecleugh-Rampgill and Nentsberry Haggs schemes.

You can see the documents on the Gov UK website at https://www.gov.uk/government/collections/metal-mine-water-treatment. EA is asking for feedback about from their recent consultation - the forms can be viewed via the website. The local documents are at https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/caplecleugh-and-rampgill-mine-water-treatment-scheme.

More recent docs for each site are at https://www.gov.uk/topic/coal/water-management

The latest news is that the weirs in Caplecleugh Low, Rampgill and Nentsberry Haggs Level are to be replaced between 27th March and 31st March 2017. We are asked to avoid the working areas during those dates and also to take note of any damage etc after they have been completed.

The EA are interested in hearing about any significant water flows, particularly in Caplelcleugh Low Level. The water flow at the entrance can vary over a wide range and it would be really useful to know if there is a single source underground which causes this variation. So...if you are in the mine at any time when the flow at the entrance seems greater than normal, please have a look at where the flow might have increased underground.

I am happy to discuss this - phone me on 07718 385646. Pete Jackson. Any information will help to strengthen the relationship between NMCS and the EA.

I dont want to take this off thread but find it heartening that a government agency realizes that Mine Exploration is a legitimate activity and that those involved are in a position to offer positive help to the agency involved.

We enjoy a similar position mid Wales where a local mines forum enables an exchange of information and ideas in addition to a positive commitment by the trusts I am personally involved with, towards helping Natural Resources Wales in their environmental and other work.

We also enjoy a good working relationship with CADW in respect with the SAM status of most of our portfolio.

Myself and my underground companion are frequently in Caplecleugh.
We'd be happy to report any change in flow for you.
