Concerned about water quality in the English Dee catchment?
So are we – which is why we are reaching out to find people willing to monitor sewage pollution in the English River Dee or its tributaries like the Aldford Brook or Wych Brook. Whether you are an angler, a paddler, a swimmer or just someone that enjoys walking along the banks of our rivers, we invite you to join our online workshop ‘It Shouldn’t Be In The Dee: Sewage Pollution’.
As well as learning more about sewage pollution and different methods that individuals and community groups can use to monitor it, we will be joined by passionate volunteers and campaigners from some prominent groups across the UK who are working as and with citizen scientists to collect and analyse water quality data in their areas.Drawing inspiration from the impact of their work, there will then be the opportunity to express your interest in being involved with our work at Welsh Dee Trust and an open discussion about how we can work together to develop a plan for monitoring the Dee.
This project is funded by the Government’s Green Recovery Challenge Fund. The fund was developed by Defra and its Arm’s-Length Bodies. It is being delivered by The National Lottery Heritage Fund in partnership with Natural England, the Environment Agency and Forestry Commission.
