News from my past work experience place: North Devon’s UNESCO Biosphere Reserve, river sustainable project.
The river monitoring project established to check on the health of North Devon’s River Torridge.
A river monitoring project established to check on the health of North Devon’s River Torridge has been set up earlier this year, the project now has 34 trained volunteers who are carrying out vital regular monitoring.
The initiative, known as the Riverfly Partnership, is part of a national project monitoring the long-term health of our rivers and helps to pick up on pollution incidents.
The Devon version was set up in the Torridge catchment. It was put in place by the Northern Devon Nature Improvement Area (NIA). So far it has generated a good deal of local interest.
North Devon’s UNESCO Biosphere Reserve reports the network of volunteers have been collecting data which is providing an invaluable view of water quality in the catchment. So much so that other groups are interested, should funding allow, in taking up Riverfly in the Taw catchment and on Exmoor, and there is also potential to extend the Torridge network by recruiting even more volunteers.
