Case_study:River Irwell Restoration Project

This is a parent project
encompassing the following
projects
No
Brick lined channel through the park

Project summary

Edit project overview to modify the project summary.


One of the most heavily modified and constrained sections of river corridor in the UK. Failing for WFD (Fish, Hydromorphology and Invertebrates)

  • In it’s current condition presents a flood risk downstream
  • Has no natural connectivity with Clayton Vale and Philips Parks
  • No formal access for public
  • No recreational activities undertaken

Feasibility

  • Completed flood risk assessment
  • Completed a full contaminated land assessment
  • Engaged with the community via the River Restoration in Schools project
  • Surrounding Ecology and Biodiversity surveys complete
  • Community and partner engagement
  • Partnerships secured
  • Full designs complete
  • Monitoring programme established

Monitoring surveys and results

This case study hasn’t got any Monitoring survey and results, you can add some by editing the project overview.
