River Deveron catchment
Catchment walks have been completed in the Deveron Catchment and the data collected is currently being collated. Initial assessment of the data reveals that Diffuse Pollution General Binding Rules (DP GBR) breaches in relation to poaching of watercourses by livestock (DP GBR19) and cultivation of land likely to cause pollution (DP GBR20) are the most predominant. A large number of good practice measures, in terms of alternative watering method for livestock and buffer zones, was also observed.
Details of the findings and awareness events will be posted here in the near future.
In the meantime if you have any questions please contact the Catchment Co-ordinator Eddie Nicol at the SEPA Elgin office, telephone 01343 547663.
