Peterborough City Centre RiverCare group are leading on an
exciting new project to monitor the health of the Werrington Brook in the city.
This is part of a larger river restoration project by the Environment Agency,
Peterborough City Council and Peterborough Environment City Trust.
after works are completed is something that projects like this struggle with
implementing though - this is where RiverCare comes in!
volunteers have adopted this restored section of river and are being trained in
biological recording techniques to monitor how successful the restoration works
have actually been! We launched the monitoring project on Saturday 2 April with training sessions, guided walk along the river and a litter pick.
The trained group will now hold regular litter picks, check Dissolved Oxygen
levels and carry out fixed point photography at key points at the site. The
results will feedback to the Environment Agency and provide important
scientific data that will influence future management decisions on this
Over the next 5 years our group will measure other parameters and
other stretches in the project area will need monitoring after works are
completed too – so there is plenty to keep our group busy! They will need lots
of help too so please get in touch if you would like to join them!
