River health training
Concerned about the health of your local river?
We are holding several free training events at locations across Shropshire to show you how you can assess the quality of your local watercourse.
These drop in sessions will show you how to conduct water chemistry tests, undertake kick sampling to survey aquatic wildlife and keep an observant eye out for any other wildlife spots or signs of pollution.
We will also look at the new river health checker app, which we have developed to allow you to assess your local river and record the results, which will be used to build up a map of the state of watercourses across Shropshire.
Training is free, thanks to funding provided by the Royal Society of Chemistry and the Environment Agency.
