It has re-connected springwater to the marshland, rather than draining it away quickly down old drainage systems.
NRW says it will mean the water will be held in the ground for up to a week, helping to reduce river levels in the nearby Afon Geirch.
This river ultimately flows through Pwllheli’s West End, an area of high flood risk, before entering the sea at Pwllheli Harbour.
NRW says keeping the lime-rich spring water in the marshland will improve it as a habitat to support more wildlife like the lesser butterfly orchid, marsh helloborine and dragonflies including the small red damselfly.
