Project Catchment



The River Starts Here

Our starts where water falls. This has consequences for river health, as road runoff, the things we flush down the drain and industrial run-off means that we all can do something to improve our precious backyard brooks on their journey to becoming a river.

The River Starts Here was a 3.5 year project that has been designed to bring business, people and rivers together. Local headwaters and brooks are the lifeblood of communities they pass through and The River Starts Here created opportunities to connect people and businesses with their local brook or stream. Businesses learned about their impact on the river, became advocates as part of their learning journey and communities found hands-on roles to improve the often overlooked brooks and streams that weave towards the Trent.
