These reports describe the state of the waterways and compare them to where they need to be for ecological health. As well as providing fascinating insights into water quality, the reports list the actions that we need to put in place to make the ecology of our waterways better. Interesting and new information on underwater life including fish and water plants is included.
The Thurne report was produced by the Environment Agency, working with the Broads Authority and members of the Upper Thurne Working Group.
Further reports on the other rivers in the Broads, such as the Bure, Ant and Yare, will be completed early in 2017.
