One of the key aims of the ‘Waters of LIFE’ IP is to establish a voluntary pilot Results Based Payment Scheme (RBPS) linked to environmental quality generally and water quality in particular.
Landowners & Interest Groups
Working together to protect, restore, respect and sustain our environment and our rural communities.
A key aim of the ‘Waters of LIFE’ project is to work with landowners and communities to raise awareness of blue dot water bodies and promote their protection and restoration. This will be done by supporting the work already being done and by encouraging more people to get involved. Everyone has a role to play in this project and landowners and community involvement will be key to its success.
Forestry can impact on rivers in a number of ways including: sediment losses during harvesting or planting operations; changes to flow regimes and physical character through drainage works; nutrient losses associated with decomposition of brash, fertilisation operations or ammonia losses from planted peatlands.
