Project Overview

We are working with Addingham Environment Group, the Ilkley Clean River Group and a range of other green groups along the Wharfe to raise awareness about river water quality.  The project is called “iWharfe: improving water quality in the River Wharfe from Oughtershaw to the Ouse”.  It’s a citizen science project and more details can be found here.

The project will also include a survey of visitors using the river for recreation at approximately 30 sites along the full length of the river from Upper Wharfedale to Tadcaster.  This aspect of the project is being organised by the Ilkley Clean River Group.  See here for more details.
