Old River Irlam Bathymetric Survey Report

Restoring the Old River Irwell in Irlam after its near total wipe out from a pollution incident in 2008 has been a long and difficult process.

We’ve been working together on the Old River Project our local Environment Agency fisheries team since we took over the lease on the lake in 2012.

Since 2012 we have re-built pegs, stocked nearly 10,000 fish (roach, rudd, tench and bream) but the task of returning the lake to its former glories has proved much more difficult than we originally thought it would be.

On 11th February our EA fisheries team organised a  3D bathymetric survey of lake.
