Solar-powered drinking pump, Kendal

As part of a river restoration project we undertook at Kendal, with the Environment Agency, we worked with the landowner to install this solar-powered cattle drinking pump. Previously the cattle drank directly from the stream, but this caused the river banks to erode and allowed cow waste and sediment to enter the watercourse

The stream is now fenced off from livestock and will be allowed to revegetate whilst still providing ample drinking water for the cattle.
