Howt Green Reservoir
JPR Environmental constructed a new farm reservoir at Howt Green in Sittingbourne last year. The farm belongs to Goatham & Sons, one of the largest apple and pear growers in the UK. The new reservoir will ensure that top quality fruits will be grown in the heart of Kent – often referred to as ‘The Garden of England’.
Goatham & Sons contracted JPR Environmental to design and build the reservoir with the plan being that it would fill with the winter’s rainfall. This project involved large-scale earthworks and the movment of many 1000s of tonnes of soil.
