The state of England's Chalk Streams Empty
PostSubject: The state of England's Chalk Streams   The state of England's Chalk Streams EmptyWed Dec 03, 2014 11:45 am

A new report by WWF, The State of England's Chalk Streams, reveals that our precious chalk streams are in a shocking state of health.

  •  77% of our chalk streams are failing to meet the Good status required by the Water Framework Directive.
  • Only 12 out of our 224 chalk streams have protected status.
  • The chalk aquifer – the engine room of the chalk stream – is classed as in poor health with phosphate and nitrate levels dangerously high.
  • Chalk streams are still facing a multitude of threats – physical modification, over-abstraction, pollution from sewage works, septic tanks and agriculture; and growing pressure from a growing population, climate change and non-native invasive species.

This article is by one of the speakers at that event:

Here is the WWF page summarising the report: http://www.wwf.org.uk/where_we_work/europe/rivers_in_the_uk/englands_chalk_streams/
The original report is here: http://assets.wwf.org.uk/downloads/wwf_chalkstreamreport_final_lr.pdf?_ga=1.11282035.616199822.1417606833
