2400 Gallon Drain Beaver
Client: Black Sluice Internal Drainage Board
The Black Sluice Internal Drainage Board is the authority set up to control water levels and reduce the risk of flooding within the Board’s area. It operates 34 pumping stations and maintains 500 miles of watercourses throughout Lincolnshire. The tanker is used for jetting out drainage culverts up to 48” in diameter. This helps to prevent flooding thus reducing the massive costs associated with flood damage.
Before Black Sluice approached Major, all jetting works were subcontracted to private operators. Taking this work back in-house has resulted in increased efficiency and has allowed a greater number of drain blasting operations.
