River Lea Catchment Quote (Thames21) ‘The Moore Brook is a largely hidden watercourse, flowing within a pipe beneath our feet, it runs into the Pymmes Brook, which in turn runs into the Lea and then the Thames
This project seeks to renaturalise the river, freeing it from its underground pipe and raising to the surface. At Firs Farm Wetlands, a partnership project by Thames21, Friends of Firs Farm and Enfield Council, a new channel and a series of wetland basins have been created, reducing flood risk by storing water and naturally breaking down pollutants within the brook.’
