The Angarrack Stream | Flood Profile for Hayle version 7, April 2018

 

The Angarrack Stream

The Angarrack Stream flows into Copperhouse Pool and is tidal to Phillack. Flood risks are significant in the area around Marsh Lane and Loggans Mill roundabout, where the A30 is particularly vulnerable, and along the built up area between the roundabout and Copperhouse Pool. At times of high flow in the Angarrack Stream the Environment Agency pumps water from the pumping station upstream of Marsh Lane to further downstreamon the Angarrack River.  read more »

Angarrack Flood Plan 2018

181001 | Copperhouse gate refurbishment

Copperhouse gate refurbishment will ensure Hayle continues to be protected from flooding

This autumn the Environment Agency will carry out refurbishment work on the Copperhouse Gate.

The gate is a critical part of the Angarrack Flood Alleviation Scheme which provides flood protection to 138 properties in the Copperhouse area of Hayle. The refurbishment will ensure that the existing level of flood defence is maintained for a further 30 years.

Work will be carried out by Environment Agency contractors BMMJV and will begin this November. Refurbishment of the gate will take approximately 7 weeks and during this time an area of the North Quay will not be accessible to the public.  read more »

The Hayle Harbour Trust is investigating whether it might be possible to restore a causeway across from the Spit to Lelant Quay. The first image shows the approximate original route from the late 1700s in yellow and a shorter route in green. Would anyone object to this? The Harbour Master has given preliminary support since Lelant Water is not considered a navigable waterway. It would not affect the ability of vessels to pass up there at high tide and would permit foot traffic for quite a large percentage of the day. It would make a nice connection/short cut on the Coastal Footpath.  read more »
