Extended Riverfly - monitoring the impacts of siltation and low flows upon freshwater invertebrates

As a result of colaborative work between the Environment Agency (EA), Lincolnshire Chalk Streams Project (LCSP) and some experinced LCSP volunteer Riverfly monitors, an extended freshwater invertebrate monitoring project is ongoing in order to detect and record the impacts of low flow variation and siltation upon riverflies in Lincolnshire chalk streams. Additional training and support is provided to volunteers by EA and LCSP staff locally and the resulting data is used by EA to support it's own targeting of resources to alleviate the impacts of these issues.
