Our rehabilitation work on the River Wandle’s Carshalton Arm has won the Urban Category of the 2016 UK River Prize.
By opening up fish passage, enhancing river habitat, addressing urban diffuse pollution and reintroducing brown trout, we have attained ‘Good Ecological Potential’ for the Carshalton Arm and re-established trout for the first time in over 80 years!
We attended the Awards Ceremony in Blackpool this week at the River Restoration Centre‘s Annual Conference to collect our award and showcase our project to the wider river community.
We wouldn’t have been able to achieve this without all the people and organisations who helped us along way. To express our gratitude, we created this short film about the journey this project has taken us on.
