River monitoring uses the power of volunteers to collect data on the health of our rivers.
Several different methods are used including collecting samples of river invertebrates. This tells us how clean the water is, as different species can survive in water of different qualities.
Surveys are carried out once a month to track how the river is improving and the wildlife present at each site.
Why do it?
River Monitoring allows us to identify Fish numbers and species Any pollution incidents that have occured Plants and animals that may harm native wildlife Plastics and litter Abnormally high nutrient levels Beauty spots
Once we know what is going on under the surface, we will use the data you have collected to improve your local beck. You will also become part of our volunteer community with the opportunity to meet others with a passion for the river.
