Taw River Improvement Project
The Taw River Improvement Project (TRIP) was a partnership project funded by the Environment Agency.
The TRIP aimed to improve the health of this vital river ecosystem through targeted habitat management work and by reducing the amount of pollutants entering the rivers. Funding was used to remove river obstacles such as weirs. This created joined-up habitats and made it easier for fish and other aquatic animals to move freely between different stretches of river. The Trust gave grants to 19 farmers to help improve floodplain grazing marshes and to put up fencing to exclude stock from rivers and streams. The fencing has helped reduce the amount of nutrients entering the water.
