Monitoring Water Quality

The Rivers Trust.pngPartnering with the River Trust, we will be helping to monitor the water quality at Toddbrook by measuring the levels of coliform in the water at two points, point A being just above a swimming area and point B being above all the points of consented discharges (where wastewater is released) so that it can be used for a background comparison.
