Peter King from OART, the Ouse & Adur Rivers Trust, and Kim Smith from the Environment Agency
In this two presenter talk, Peter King will talk about OART projects, especially in the Ouse catchment, to moderate water flow, restore habitat, and improve water quality.
Kim Smith of the Environment Agency will cover subjects such as flood risk in the Lewes area; agricultural practices that influence flood risk; sewage and pollution inflows to the river; agricultural and water supply abstraction; climate change; and big picture strategy about mitigation and planning, perhaps touching on the future of the Cliffe bridge bottleneck.
