Our Vision is that:
The Colne Catchment is a place where people are working together to protect and improve the water environment for everyone.
Water is clean, plentiful and, sensitively managed, meeting the needs of all those that rely on its resource but enabling it to reach its full biological potential, supporting rich and diverse populations of fish, birds and other wildlife. The Catchment is a healthy, economically vibrant environment, creating a natural and attractive amenity for people to enjoy and improving social wellbeing for present and future generations.
Fisheries Consultative launches new plan to combat Colne pollution
The Colne Valley Fisheries Consultative has launched a new Project to enable the public to report and map pollution incidents in the Colne catchment.
Uxbridge Rover Angling Club members and volunteers cleared about 10 tons of pennywort from the Colne in Denham Country Park
Sewage Treatment Works Reopening
Blackbirds Farm Sewage Treatment Works (STW) in Radlett will come back on line in the next few days, probably starting on Thursday afternoon. Flows will increase by between five and eleven millions gallons a day and given the exceptionally low flows in the river through Watford while the STW has been off line you should expect to see a flush through of potentially hazardous material. Please keep an eye open, expect increased depths and flows and report any signs of pollution immediately to the EA 0800 807060. Information courtesy of the Colne Valley Fisheries Consultative.
