A project to remove tonnes of silt from the Mill Pool at the Carrs Nature Reserve is underway in preparation for dredging work due to commence in mid to late August.

Mansfield District Council has started the process of dropping the water levels in the pool, in order to let the reed bed dry out as much as possible, prior to removal of the silt.

The council has been advised by the Environment Agency that any wildlife will settle elsewhere if their habitat is disturbed, but this will not be harmful to them in any way, a spokesman said.
