WATER IMPROVEMENT PROJECT - EAST SUFFOLK

This is one of our earliest set of projects; the original vision for each one is described on the pages below. The projects were completed in 2016. You can find more information on how they developed in the news section.

Catchment Improvement Projects (East Suffolk Watershed Initiative)

The Partnership worked to secure funding to carry out an ambitious suite of projects designed to address the two most problematic issues within the East Suffolk Catchments; diffuse agricultural pollution and the impacts of in-channel man-made structures including historic river engineering works.

The projects were identified with the help of the ecosystem services opportunity maps and developed following extensive consultation within the partnership.  They all addressed issued identified by the Water Framework Directive (WFD) and were aligned to WFD objectives. They were delivered alongside other catchment initiatives such as the Suffolk Holistic Water Management Project, to maximise benefits and reduce cost.
