Killingworth Reservoir Wetland Mitigation

Objectives

The Go-Ahead Group, one of the UK’s leading providers of passenger transport services operating primarily in the bus and rail sectors, has been responding to the CDP Climate Change program for several years. In 2012, Go-Ahead asked Corporate Citizenship, a CDP consultancy partner and accredited provider, for support in completing and submitting its CDP response.

Solution

A programme of wetland enhancement and inventory was undertaken, with SLR developing a mitigation strategy to offset the wetland impacts, developed the wetland design plans and oversaw construction.

Impact

Construction of the 6.2-acre mitigation wetland was completed under the supervision of SLR wetland scientists and the project team implemented an ongoing monitoring programme, to ensure the protection efforts live on.
