River Petteril Catchment Project - Cumbria


We are delighted to have won a Wild Trout Trust Conservation award for our work on the river Irwell (Nr Manchester) and the river Petteril (in Cumbria).

The award also highlighted our excellent work in partnership with the Eden Rivers Trust, Irwell Rivers Trust, local communities and farmers across the North West.

On the river Irwell - we delivered a large programme of in channel civil works in a very short space of time, requiring our the project partnership to work closely with the EA's operations delivery team. The newly formed Irwell Rivers Trust also helped to deliver some low risk work under the guidance of the projects team, who are helping the trust to gain new skills and experience in river restoration.

On the river Petteril - we delivered a collaborative project with the Eden rivers trust to improve water framework directive classifications on the river Petteril in Cumbria. The project is a fantastic example of how we can deliver more by working better with others.
