The rains came down...

Last weekend saw the heaviest rains in New Mills for over two years and with the rains came flash floods down at the Hydro - as you can see from the pictures what is normally our 'intake is completely blocked and will need excavating, there is also damage to the sluice gate which would stop normal Operations also.

The Directors are working with our insurers to bring about a swift resolution to the situation, but any river works will have to wait until 15 March due to the fish breeding season.
