Dowies Mill Engagement

view over dowies mill weir

The City of Edinburgh Council and its consultants, AECOM are working on plans to improve fish passage at Dowies Mill Weir.  Two public events have been held recently to provide updates on the work done to date.

This project is part of the Almond Barriers Project which is a catchment-scale fish passage restoration project.  Seven key barriers were identified for improving fish passage one of which is Dowies Mill.  Work has now been completed at six of the weirs and Dowies Mill is the last one to be completed.  Links to the engagement can be found below (they may take a little time to load).
