At a time when the recovery of nature is critical in the battle to reverse climate change, river corridors provide an excellent starting point to make biodiversity gains which could spread exponentially into the floodplains and beyond. This paper looks at […]

As a way of contributing to the knowledge and the clean-up of nutrient pollution, water samples are taken and tested for phosphate levels at sites that our surveyors visit. These readings are for a point in time and would vary depending on several factors. The […]
