UK – Westcountry Rivers Trust

The Westcountry rivers trust believes that rivers can be best managed by working in partnership with concerned individuals and organisations. In the UK the AARC project is focused in two areas:

  • Action to improve rivers
  • Scientific work to inform and direct that action

RIVER RESTORATION

River restoration (also known as river rehabilitation) consists of identifying problems on a river or its catchment, and then taking action to solve these problems, thereby bringing a river closer to its ‘natural state’.

SCIENTIFIC RESEARCH

By their very nature rivers connect landscapes, people, and the animals and plants that live in and around them. From the headwaters high in the moors, to the estuary discharging into the sea, water quality and quantity is essential to life.
