Exploring the key influences on the health of chalk stream headwaters

Vitacress Conservation Trust 2012 Chalk Stream Headwaters Forum – 16 November

Vitacress 2012 Forum

The eminent speakers at this year’s forum provided updates on action and research called for last year and explored some of the other key influences on the health of chalk stream headwaters. These included the way in which phosphorus is accumulated and released in still and flowing waters; drought impacts on chalk streams; and catchment-scale restoration for biodiversity offsetting. 

In addition, there were updates on ongoing initiatives such as the Bourne Rivulet and Upper Itchen.
