DTC

The DTC project is working in four study catchment areas across England, which are representative of 80% of UK soil/rainfall combinations and the major farm types in England and Wales

New resources available following Defra Demonstration Test Catchment (DTC) project

‌‌‌‌The CRPR has been involved in DTC for nearly ten years, working in the Hampshire Avon Catchment. During the final phase of the project, now completed, we produced three Science, Policy & Practice notes covering:

1.            Cost-effective ‘basic’ on-farm measures to reduce water pollution

2.            Holistic monitoring needed to underpin effective pollution mitigation

3.            Assessing the impacts of pollutants on freshwater ecology

At the request of the Hampshire Avon Catchment Partnership we have also reproduced the contents of the notes in Power-Point slide decks. These may be used, with attribution, for purposes of knowledge exchange by stakeholders within the Avon and other DTC catchment partnerships.
