Dŵr Ial Water Quality and Habitat Improvement Project – 28427 Final Report January 2020

Feb 19, 2020

This report summarises the work carried out on the Dŵr Ial in the upper Clwyd catchment to improve water quality and habitat to help this waterbody to achieve ‘good’ status under the Water Framework Directive.

This will be achieved through a combination of the creation of riparian buffer strips and cattle drinking bays to reduce silt, pesticide and nutrient inputs from surrounding land and working with farmers and landowners. The work will also lead to improved invertebrate scores, fish populations and biodiversity by improvements in water quality, management of in- channel woody debris and bankside vegetation.
