Project summary

Edit project overview to modify the project summary.


Diffusing the Issue is a partnership project that will use CRF funds to improve watercourses in areas of the Ribble Catchment that are intensely farmed. Diffuse pollution, poor habitat and obstructions to fish passage are causing certain watercourses in these areas to fail to meet the required standards under the Water Framework Directive (WFD).

Reasons for river restoration

Mitigation of a pressure Pollution incident, Riparian development, Barriers to fish migration, Impoundments (not hydropower)
Hydromorphology Continuity for organisms, Channel pattern/planform
Biology Fish
Physico-chemical Nutrient concentrations
Other reasons for the project Landscape enhancement


Measures

Structural measures
Bank/bed modifications Bank reprofiling, Reduce diffuse pollution
Floodplain / River corridor Barrier removal, Small scale easement installation, Tree plantation, Creation of fish passes, Fish habitat restoration
Planform / Channel pattern
Other UK BAP habitat creation/restoration, Farm infrastructure interventions
Non-structural measures
Management interventions Fencing, Non/agricultural business changed its way of working
Social measures (incl. engagement) Community involvement
Other Economic benefits
