Cleaning Princes Dock Waterway maintenance company Water Witch has successfully reduced the level of pollution in the water spaces around Princes Dock, Liverpool Waters, following the completion of a five-month contract with Peel Land and Property. The high profile site, which is an integral part of Liverpool’s waterfront, is currently undergoing a huge transformation as part of the £5 billion Liverpool Waters project, led by Peel Land and Property. The dock has also seen a rise in the number of popular summer events being held on the waterfront over the past few years, which has made the site a favoured spot for those living in and visiting the city. “Our work in this location dates back to when the ambitious canal link was created, connecting the Leeds Liverpool Canal to the South Docks,” says Water Witch director Jackie Caddick. “Last summer we worked with Peel Land and Property on a weekly basis on cleaning up the waterways. This included collecting algae, which occurs naturally but blooms in the warm and sunny weather. We also removed plastic bottles, Styrofoam and plastic cups, which are blown or washed into the water from all over the city. Our litter boats collected these to prevent plastics reaching the sea and causing further pollution.” The Liverpool Waters regeneration project covers 60ha (148acres) of Liverpool’s historic docklands and will create five distinct neighbourhoods with commercial, residential and leisure facilities for people to enjoy. E: PRODUCTS, SERVICES & PEOPLE US-based company Deckorators has introduced a range of composite ‘Dock and Deck Boards’. Featuring patented Eovations technology that allows virtually no moisture absorption and offers textured embossing for enhanced traction, the product is available in brown and grey colour options and in 12ft (3.6m), 16ft (4.8m) and 20ft (6m) lengths.
