Project summary

Edit project overview to modify the project summary.


There were two parts to this project:


One to determine how a Rivers Trust might perform in assessing and rectifying a waterbody to comply with the Water Framework Directive.

The second: A review of current policy tools and funding mechanisms available to address water pollution from agriculture in England WUF was delighted to have been asked to join the West Country Rivers Trust, The Severn Rivers Trust and The Rivers Trust (formerly the Association of Rivers Trusts) in assisting Alex Inman, the consultant involved in preparing the information and report for the second section. Caroline Sherrott, then WUF's Catchment Officer, carried out the assessment and report for our contribution to the first.
