Catchment management aims to prevent the pollution of raw water at the source or within it’s catchment. We offer catchment management solutions and monitoring, and advice on implementing water quality improvements.
Our scientists can carry our practical catchment monitoring as well as:
We pride ourselves on providing a holistic approach to catchment management. Our water scientists work with wider ADAS teams such as soil scientists and farm management experts to address problems associated with Diffuse Water Pollution from Agriculture (DWPA).
We have a long history of developing custom solutions for the monitoring of water quality on a range of scales. Through investigating the sources of diffuse pollutants, we can develop diffuse water pollution plans.
We can also undertake analysis and interpretation of water quality datasets.
The ADAS developed FARMSCOPER tool allows scenario testing of the impact of different mitigation measures. More sophisticated models such as PSYCHIC or APT may be used to produce projections of the impact of change at larger scales both spatially and temporally.
