Dredging the Grantham Canal

http://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/fund/GCSdredge

The first phase is to dredge the canal between the
bottom of Lock 16 at The Dirty Duck down to Lock 14.
Calculations & measurements as to how much silt we
will have to remove will first be carried out in order to
bring that canal stretch to navigable condition. This will
directly impact on the timescale and cost of the dredging
operation.
Once this project is complete we can use those skills to
survey from Lock 18 to the A1. This will assist us in
focusing on the most shallow sections in our future
dredging programme.
Meanwhile we plan to clear as much weed from the
surface in other sections and work on bringing the
beauty back into the Grantham Canal.
So our plea to you is to offer some time to assist our
volunteers in this work. Alternatively would you please
make a donation to our “Dredge” fund.

Our Dredging challenge

Dredging the Grantham is a big challenge. We would really appreciate your support on the first phase of this challenge which is to dredge the canal between the bottom of Lock 17 at The Dirty Duck down to Lock 14 opening up the section to our new lock

Our first task is to carry out calculations and measurements as to how much silt we will have to remove in order to bring that canal stretch to navigable condition. This will obviously directly impact on the timescale and cost of the dredging operation. Once this part of the project is complete we can use those skills learned to survey from Lock 18 all the way to the A1. This will assist us in focusing on the most shallow sections in our future dredging programme.

Meanwhile not sitting still we plan to clear as much weed from the surface in other sections and work on bringing the beauty back into the Grantham Canal. So our plea to you is to offer some time to assist our volunteers in this work or alternatively would you please make a donation to our “Dredge” fund!
