Watercourse Maintenance

Our priority is managing the efficient flow of water through your land

Watercourse maintenance forms a key part of Sweeting Bros Ltd's contract work.

Working for local drainage boards, farmers, landowners & Local Authorities we take on projects to ensure watercourses are kept clear of annual weed growth, silt and debris that can prevent water from moving efficiently through the drainage system. We provide specialist equipment including excavators of various sizes from 3 ton to 38 ton with reaches of up to 15m fitted with various attachments including weed cutting buckets, piling hammers and tree shears.
