    ( Dreadnought ) Malago Storm Water Interceptor Bristol 01/2011

    The Malago Road area in Bedminster bristol was prone to minor flooding up until the late sixties, then shortly after the building of a new housing estate nearby in 1968 during a severe storm it suffered a major flood in proportions never seen before...

    The old Victorian storm drain could no longer cope with the increased run off from the new housing estate and something drastic had to be done to prevent further flooding and damage.

    So in 1971 the Malago storm water interceptor was built to alleviate flooding in the Bedminster basin. Due to its increased size it could deal with massive amounts of run off as well as coping with the tidal surge that enters from the tidal portion of the river Avon new cut.

    sorry for swiping your history vw i was stumped....



    What i did find strange was having to check the tidal times before our visit never heard or thought of this before but i suppose Bristol has a tide .........which effects water levels.....

    It was a walk of 35 mins from the outfall to the infall,which was made a little less tedious
    by playing dubstep on Eotechs phone ......





    Thanks for looking Oldskool..........
