Projects

On the following pages you will find some examples of projects BART has recently been involved in.  A project can be as long or short as you want to make it – they can be just one day long and still achieve really strong benefits for the river. To make a real difference across the catchment however a more collaborative and strategic approach will be required and funding will be vital to make progress. BART is involved in this process at many levels, enabling them to identify and draw together opportunities for improvement and  engage with local stakeholders to form the viable delivery plans which are essential  to attract funding organisations.

We also have people monitoring rivers throughout the catchment. To see maps of these monitoring sites follow the links below:
