WHAT THREE WORDS – tinkle.perch.someone
A number of rivers in Cornwall are target catchments for pollution reduction.
Monitoring river water quality is essential to reducing pollution, improving
river water quality and improving bathing water quality. Pollution incidents can
occur in our watercourses, spelling disaster for river ecology. Regular
monitoring is the best way of identifying such incidents early and enabling a
rapid response.
We monitor in other river catchments in Cornwall and are hoping to offer
training further west later this year, however, wherever you live you will be
welcome to attend these practical sessions.
Cornwall Wildlife Trust is a member of the Riverfly Partnership, a network of
organisations working together to protect water quality by monitoring the
presence of certain indicator insect species. We are looking to build a team of
community volunteers who carry out monthly samples as part of this work in
Cornwall and we are very keen to hear from new volunteers.

Training Required? Yes – Provided by Cornwall Wildlife Trust
