Vitacress Conservation Trust 2010 Chalk Stream Headwaters Forum 29 November

Following last year’s Forum, where phosphorus pollution was identified as the overwhelmingly important “Elephant in the Stream”, this year’s eminent speakers explored the widespread negative influence of phosphorus-based diffuse pollution on chalk streams and larger rivers, as well as identifying what can be done about it. In addition there were updates on ongoing initiatives such as the Bourne Rivulet and Upper Itchen, as well as research on PEITC and watercress and continuing work by the Game and Wildlife Conservation Trust on the survival ecology of stocked wild Brown Trout fingerlings in chalk streams.
