The River Stort – a precious river under threat. It needs our help.

Welcome to the website of the Stort catchment partnership, and the home of the Stort Catchment Management Plan. Our Catchment Plan will improve the river for wildlife and for people. It will also help us to meet the UK's obligations under the Water Framework Directive.

 

Latest news for the River Stort

The River Stort Catchment Partnership meeting was held on 24th October 2019, at Parndon Mill in Harlow.

The next meeting of the River Stort Catchment Partnership will be at 2pm on 04/07/2017.

Four free hands-on training days organised by Herts & Middlesex Wildlife Trust to give you the skills to carry out river habitat enhancement work.

Want to learn a new skill, meet new people, stop pollution and get to know your local river (and its smaller inhabitants)?  If so, then Riverfly Monitoring could be for you!  Although the Navigation is not suitable for this sort of monitoring, the backwaters, tributaries and the Upper Stort are.  We're currently trying to establish a network of volunteer invertebrate monitors on the Stort.  Come and help us out!
