Work continues at Limefield Falls to install the new fish pass. Work has been slow due to unforeseen issues drilling the rock to install the base concrete pillars which the fish pass will be built on. Drilling of the concrete pilings into the rock took longer than first thought but these are in and the fish pass can now be built.
