River Dour Environmental Improvements

Applicant: The Dover Society

Project: Environmental Improvements on the River Dour

Grant award: £1000

The River Dour Partnership has been working with the South East Rivers Trust and the Environment Agency to improve the quality the River Dour.  One of the ways that this can be done is to add fish passes to weirs that will allow trout and other fish to move more easily up and down the river.

Funding has been secured to install a fish pass at one of the weirs in central Dover but these monies will not be released until the structure of the weir itself has been made secure enough to withstand the installation of the fish pass.  This small grant will allow the weir to be repaired and release the additional funding for more significant improvements.
