Upstream Thinking is our award-winning programme of catchment management across 10 catchments in the South West. Delivered in partnership with a range of individuals and organisations including farmers, Rivers and Wildlife Trusts and the National Park Authorities, the various schemes target improved water quality and river flows using ecologically-sensitive low cost measures including moorland restoration and improving farm soil and water management.
The Upstream Thinking projects fall into 2 categories:
- to improve water quality and natural water storage by restoring the region's moorland areas (e.g. peat bog restoration)
- delivered alongside farmers and other landowners to protect water quality in streams and rivers.
