Watercourse Maintenance

The maintenance of dykes and watercourses is fundamental in ensuring the effectiveness of any drainage system. Using a variety of specialist equipment and a skilled and experienced workforce Sweeting Bros Ltd maintain and upgrade the dykes and watercourses for a number of drainage boards, local authorities and land owners.

Works carried out include:

  • Piling

    The installation of plastic or timber piles is essential to maintain the stability of the banks of many watercourses.
  • De-silting, weed cutting and re-grading

    Using a range of specialist machinery and implements we are able to carry out these tasks efficiently and economically whilst having a low environmental impact on the surrounding area.
  • Watercourse construction

    Purpose made vee buckets and laser levelling are used to construct new watercourses.
  • Culvert construction
