Wissey Catchment

The Wissey sub-catchment contains 9 waterbodies, with two waterbodies achieving Good water quality (Thompson Stream and Thompson Water), and one waterbody achieving Poor water quality (Stringside Stream). All other waterbodies within the Wissey achieved Moderate water quality.  The Wissey has significant issues with diffuse and point source pollution, and poor water flow. 

If this is an area of interest for you then you may be interested to know that the River Wissey Partnership operates here, with a primary focus on river flows and water quality. We have a particularly enthusiastic group of farm advisors who are currently helping to shape our Water Sensitive Farming strategy. 

If you wish to be included in the partnership, please contact us on [email protected] and we will provide you with updates/invitations to upcoming meetings.
