Geoff Brighty: River Lark – Pollution Review and Action Plan
May 12 @ 19:00 - 20:00
The ground-breaking new report River Lark Pollution Review and Action Plan sets out how some key goals could be achieved in dealing with Lark pollution, with the active leadership and help of Jo Churchill MP.
The River Lark Pollution Review and Action Plan represents the work of a collaborative action group of organisations that have come together, including Anglian Water, the CamEO, Environment Agency, Norfolk Rivers Trust, the Rivers Trust, and the Riverfly Partnership.
The report provides evidence of the poor health of the River Lark, and identifies the actions needed to rescue this precious chalk stream.
Geoff Brighty author of the report and the speaker for this webinar says:
“The river has recently faced three years of hot, dry summer weather and sustained abstraction, coupled with the combination of point source and wider catchment diffuse pollution from both town and land management. This is leading to a potentially lethal, unsustainable combination of increasing pressures of pollution and water demand. This has a moral and a legal imperative – this should not be happening”
