Catchment and process based geomorphological and ecological assessments to identify system pressures leading to WFD failure. Nature based opportunity identification at a catchment level to identify and prioritise future WFD related projects.
JBA were appointed to undertake a feasibility assessment to identify restoration options to re-wet the landscape and restore rivers across the Arlington Estate for the National Trust. Natasha was the project manager and lead Geomorphologist. Desk- and site-based assessments were undertaken, as well as optioneering and catchment-scale hydraulic modelling.
JBA produced a River Restoration Plan for the River Lathkill. The plan lays out restoration opportunities for the river to restore natural geomorphological processes by removing and mitigating physical modifications. The plan aims to deliver multiple benefits for aquatic species and their habitats. Natasha was the lead geomorphologist for this project as well as the Project Manager.
