Discussing the successful large scale restoration techniques being implemented.

Following last year’s forum, where phosphorus pollution was a key area of discussion, this year’s eminent speakers provided updates on action and research called for at last year’s forum.

Forum 2011

Further key influences on the health of chalk stream headwaters were explored, which included the threats of phosphorus release and temperature elevation posed to headwaters by artificial impoundments. Successful large scale restoration techniques are being implemented on the SAC-designated River Wensum in Norfolk.

There were also updates on ongoing initiatives such as the Bourne Rivulet and Upper Itchen.
