Lancaster consortium wins new National Demonstration Test Catchment in the River Eden
A consortium including staff from LEC together with others including Universites of Durham, Newcastle, Cumbria and the Eden Rivers Trust have recently been successful in a bid to Defra to develop a new National Demonstration Test Catchment (DTC) on the River Eden.
The project is led by Professor Phil Haygarth in LEC and will run initially until March 2014, worth nearly £2 million.
The aim of the project is to establish infrastructure for a multi-organisation consortia to undertake research and monitoring activities on diffuse pollution in the River Eden in Cumbria. It will study multiple diffuse pollutants including nitrates, phosphorus, sediment, faecal indicator organisms, dissolved organic carbon and ammonium.
The consortium plans to establish the Eden DTC Central Information Office at Newton Rigg that will be used as the base site for researchers working within the DTC project and analytical equipment that will be housed securely on the universities farm, ready for implementation in the field throughout the Eden DTC.
Further information can be found at the River Eden Demonstration Test Catchment website.
