RiverFly Testing


As part of the park’s relationship with the Staffordshire Wildlife Trust members of the Friends Group and council colleagues took part in a training day so that we can measure the water quality in the River Trent where it passes through the park.

The testing consists of tracking the quantity and condition of the various types of insect larvae which live in the water and so being able to assess the water quality.
