Sedimentation Survey

Thanks to everyone who contributed to the Welland Rivers Trust’s survey of riffles in the river Welland and its tributaries in recent months. The results obtained, especially those for sediment levels in riffles, help to improve our understanding of the health of the river and contribute to plans for improving it.

We are also carrying out surveys of farms in the river basin in order to understand better the sources of sediment coming from agricultural land, and to help farmers reduce the impact.  As with the riffle surveys, this is great opportunity to get out into the river basin and do something practical to help improve it. The survey involves walking over farms during the next few months, looking for signs of surface run-off and other pathways which allow sediment to reach water.

To help you submit useful information, we can provide guidance for you in advance. We can also allocate specific farms which are near to you, or if you have a favourite patch that you would like to cover, then this would also be useful, as long as it has not already been visited.If you would like to get involved in this survey, please send your contact and location details by clicking here.

We are Volunteers

The WRT and Working Group members are all volunteers. People from all walks of life with varied skills and knowledge. The one common factor which binds them all together is a love of the river and its environment and a willingness to devote time and energy towards its health and preservation.

Over the past twelve months, this group has grown from just a few enthusiastic pioneers to a team of over 20; including farmers, fishermen, environmentalists, wild-life specialists, and ordinary people who want to contribute. Hear some of them speaking about their passions in this short film.
