Projects in the catchments are having river surveys before more work commences.
The Mersey Rivers Trust is surveying as part of several projects. So far, we have surveyed along Rivacre Brook on the Wirral and an un-named tributary in Cheadle. Both these brooks are connected to the River Mersey, although they are many miles from each other. Both have issues of diffuse urban pollution.
The initial survey for each project is currently being carried out to map out the places to investigate in more depth.
