Celebrating wetlands - where land meets water

Monday, March 1, 2021

Wetland habitats take many forms, from upland peat bogs through to valley mires, floodplain meadows and vast reedbeds. Whether fed by rain or groundwater, these wet habitats all need a water supply to create the conditions that keep their soils, vegetation and resident species happy and healthy. In the UK we have lost a startling 90% of our former wetlands, often by draining them to make way for agriculture, development, forestry and other land uses.

Anglian Water Invests in New Wetland

Friday, July 7, 2017

Anglian Water announces £500k investment for new Norfolk wetland water treatment facility.

A brand new wetland is to be created in Norfolk, funded by Anglian Water and created in partnership with Norfolk Rivers Trust and the Environment Agency.

The new one-hectare site will act as an innovative, natural treatment plant for over a million litres of water a day. Used but treated water will pass through the wetland to be further filtered and cleaned before it's returned to the environment in the River Ingol.
