  • Overview of data resources There is a lot of data out there for urban (less) and rural (more). The aim is to make it as accessible as possible. In the basic package you will be getting... X
  • Basic Data. Organised according to four questions 1) Where are the opportunities for action? 2) Where are the known issues? 3) What are the key catchment characteristics? 4) What are the possible causes of problems?Base mapping (context)
  • How is the data organised?
  • Where are the opportunities for actions? Focus effort where we can do things? 1)Freshwater and 2)Water Regulation (e.g. SuDS) 3)Habitats & wildlife, 4)Recreation & Culture 5)Climate Regulation X Drinking water SSSI, & Habitat opportunity
  • Where are the known problems? Start with WFD 2013 and then move on to any local assessments. For 1)Surface Water and 2)Groundwater 3)Lakes, 4) Transitional & 5)Coastal waters Ecological status Chemical status Monitoring sites
  • What are the key catchment characteristics? To help understand the problems and more importantly what we can do about them. Rainfall, Landuse and Habitats, Surface & Groundwater. Lakes, Transitional and Coastal Priority Habitats Land Drainage
  • What are the possible causes? If there is only one possible cause it is easy; multiple causes are more troublesome! 1) Point sources & 2) Diffuse Barriers & other + EA reasons for failure
  • Additional Data Resources: Refine the basic data pack with according to your specific issues • More detailed versions of basic data • Additional data layers – Geostore, NE, RT data store – OS, BGS, CEH & NSRI – Local data, e.g. Walkovers • Urban data is often in this section I am afraid.
  • Additional Data Resources: Refine the basic data pack according to your specific issues X
  • How confident can we be of the data? Measurement error, sample error and model error Optimism with a touch of cynicism
  • Collecting our own data? Data storage, standards & provenance 1) Predict 2) Monitor 3) Understand 4) Monitor
  • Some final thoughts on data? 1) Bring out your walkover data! 2) We are getting a central license sorted out but you will need to send it back, 50 layers in the basic package. 3) We have surveyed you and got a lot of good feedback but please come and see me, especially urban. 4) This is not the end .......
  • Overview of modelling tools: The basics • All models are wrong, but then so is the monitoring! • They are useful for ‘What ifs?’. • Models are an important component of a weight of evidence approach. • You are getting model output in the basic data package.
  • Rural modelling: A wealth of outputs available. • SA GIS (In river concentration) • PSYCHIC, NeapN, and Farmscoper • SCIMAP (Relative risk) • ECM+ (Export coefficient) • FS2. • SWAT, CatchIS, iMap Water and many more! Output from the optimisation of measures in Farmscoper
  • Urban modelling: There is a lot of outputs available. • SA GIS. • Integrated Urban Drainage Modelling. • Agency urban nitrate layer • ConSim and LandSim. • And many more for specific situations. Integrated Urban drainage modelling
  • Some final thoughts. • Models give better relative than absolute predictions. • Designed to answer a problem. Work with the modellers to answer your problem. • Scale is critical. • Using multiple model outputs is good practice. • You will get quite a few model outputs in the basic data package. SuDS map from BGS
  • Some final thoughts: If everyone agrees about the cause of the problem and the best measures to solve it we don’t need models. Where there is a lack of consensus models can help.
  • Interactive Session The River Perch catchment • 271 square kilometres in the English midlands, • drains a varied landscape and range of habitats. • rises in the moorland and mires of the Hassett Hills • flows south through a rolling agricultural landscape before entering the town of Felpersham. • Tributary Am – flows through intensive agricultural landscape • Joins sea at Severn Estuary
  • Interactive Session The River Perch catchment • 4 of the 7 waterbodies failing WFD • CaBA partnership - The River Perch Catchment Initiative –jointly led by the Friends of the River Perch and the Borsetshire Wildlife Trust. • You have been invited to a River Perch Catchment Initiative stakeholder workshop planning meeting to decide on the next steps for your partnership.
  • Interactive Session Your mission (should you choose to accept it!): Use the maps and information you have access to in order to prioritise and select three next steps for your partnership to take You have 20 minutes to review the information and decide on your next steps. Please nominate a reporter to feed back at the end on how your group made the decisions and what you think you do and don’t know about your catchment. You may like to consider these questions when reviewing the information that you have been provided with: – What are the key characteristics of my catchment? – Where are the well-known problems in my catchment? – What are the possible causes of problems? – Where are the priority areas?
  • Interactive Session 1. Obtain outputs from sediment runoff risk model 2. Hold a meeting at a water treatment works between farmers and the water company 3. Undertake pollution walkover survey 4. Hold a ' causes workshop' to investigate with stakeholders what the possible causes of problems are 5. Seek funding to identify urban misconnections and undertake a public education campaign 6. Review monitoring data to identify information gaps and decide what additional data would be useful 7. Identify delivery organisations already active in the catchment
  • Interactive Session 8. Obtain outputs from a nutrient source apportionment model 9. Find out more about reasons for failure 10. Hold a 'measures' workshop to identify which measures to select 11. Apply for a grant to deliver a programme of agricultural advice and investment 12. Meet with your main stakeholders in a brainstorming or workshop situation to build consensus about the main issues and concerns in the catchment. 13. Undertake a Yellow fish labelling campaign on road drains
