Water Quality

The RESP Water Testing team has been formed to monitor the quality of the Eden’s water and give insights into the issues affecting the river on its way to the sea. One of the main concerns is the effect on our vital river weed – Ranunculus or Water Crowfoot which has disappeared in some sections of the river. Our team’s findings will complement those of the Riverfly team to produce a picture of the issues affecting life both within the river and along its banks.
