Peatland Restoration at Cunningsburgh Hill Apportionment by Lerwick, Shetland.

So it may be heavy and dirty work, but by damming water flows from peatland, the overall water table within the bog is raised, improving its condition and subsequently vastly improving its carbon dioxide absorption from the atmosphere.

This work was funded by SNH’s Peatland Action Programme and carried out by Shetland Amenity Trust’s Woodlands Team.
