International project experience

This was an Interreg 2 Seas project to develop new approaches to high deviations in DOC concentrations in sources for drinking water as a result of climate change.

SWW collaborated with the Environment Agency, the Association of Rivers Trusts and six French environmental, commercial and local government organisations to bring about improvements in river water quality and reducing flooding risk.
