The Mires-on-the-moors project: Can restoring moorlands enhance water supply, improve water quality and store more carbon in the landscape? The challenge On the uplands of…
On the uplands of Exmoor and Dartmoor, generations of peat-cutting and the creation of drainage ditches has caused the mires to dry out, which reduces the water-holding capacity of the moors. This increases the fluctuation in river flows throughout the ye… https://www.wskep.net/waterr2b/sectors/water-utilities/mires-moor/

Across the UK many rivers are eutrophic and have phosphorus levels well above the WFD limits for good ecological status. The challenge is to devise a cost effective strategy for P reductions in rivers in order to meet the WFD standards. https://www.wskep.net/waterr2b/sectors/water-utilities/phosphorous/

The UK is a densely populated small island. Its small rivers allow limited dilution of any chemical that enters them. Because of this, aquatic life here faces more risk of exposure to pharmaceuticals than in most developed nations. https://www.wskep.net/waterr2b/sectors/health-emergency/cytotoxins/
