Water Quality of the River Stour
The news of untreated sewage released into UK rivers, including our River Stour, raised great concerns for wildlife and for people swimming, sailing etc. Nine members of PACE are trained to take samples each month of water and invertebrates which measure water quality. Our results go to the Environment Agency who investigate any concerns. You can join the sampling team if you want to learn.
** Update September 2023 ** A report has now been completed which gives detail on the sampling and the outsomes and results, click button to access:
