This guide has been produced following consultation with a wide range of interested parties, both within the Environment Agency, and in other organisations. Taking account of themultitude of views expressed has been a balancing act, which aptly reflects the process that isrequired when planning and implementing works on weirs. No solution will fully satisfy thedesires of all parties, but hopefully, through consultation, all parties will accept that the end product is appropriate and worthwhile.The authors are extremely grateful for the assistance and contributions made by Andrew Pepper and Samantha Godfrey.The impetus for the guide came out of a research project carried out by Paul Wyse at Universityof Hertfordshire.The Environment Agency is particularly grateful to the following people from externalorganisations who contributed to the production of this guide:Chris Hawkesworth (British Canoe Union)George Parr (British Canoe Union)Laurence Morgan (British Waterways)Judy Grice (British Waterways)Rodney White (HR Wallingford)Bridget Woods-Ballard (HR Wallingford)Andrew Brookes (Gifford)Johan Schutten (English Nature)David Fraser (English Nature)Jenny Mant (River Restoration Centre)John Ackers (Black and Veatch)
