Practical guidance for CaBA partners interested in designing and managing a water quality monitoring programme. Includes a summary of monitoring equipment, data analysis and visualisation ideas, sampling protocols and advice for FIO monitoring and guidance on planning your strategy, engaging volunteers and resourcing.
The Wholescape Approach to Marine Management ‘WAMM’ project will help support a more collaborative approach between Coastal and CaBA partnerships.
The purpose of this resource is to provide guidance and suggestions for capturing more meaningful metrics on engagement (citizen science, volunteering etc) and the social and economic benefits of work by CaBA partnerships.
This document brings together a number of easy-to-install monitoring measures that can be used to help
understand the effectiveness of field scale agricultural measures or Natural Flood Management schemes in catchments.
A case study: Water Sensitive Farming (WSF) is an initiative that delivers benefits for water resources, as well as for the wider environment, farm businesses and supply chains.
A proposed approach to ensure plans meet partners’ needs, are compliant with legal commitments and helps achieve outcomes despite limited resource.
Trent Rivers Trust, working in partnership with Severn Trent Water, The Rivers Trust and the Environment Agency engaged the local community in surveying the Alfreton Brook for sources of urban pollution using a methodology first developed by Zoological Society of London.
How much can natural measures reduce flooding at large scales? To answer this question over the next three years the Q-NFM investigator team, lead by Lancaster University, will work in three large Cumbrian catchments (‘test basins’), the Eden, Derwent and Kent with their partners who are delivering NFM interventions .
In this review, Westcountry Rivers Trust explores the data and evidence available, which, taken together, demonstrate qualitatively and quantitatively that the delivery of integrated catchment management interventions can realise genuine improvements in water quality.
Farmscoper is a decision support tool developed by ADAS, that can be used to assess diffuse agricultural pollutant loads on a farm and quantify the impacts of farm mitigation methods on these pollutants.
