European Union Many of our projects have been built with European funds. Our ISAC project in the Irfon, for instance, was financed by the EU's Life+ Fund. Our current DNMP project is financed by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF), as was our pHish project which, among other things, was our first attempt to remedy the effects of acid rain in the Wye's headwaters. ERDF funding was also instrumental for our first major project on the Usk - UP! In addition to the funding, European environmental legislation underpins much of the Foundation's work, particularly the Habitats Directive and Water Framework Directive.
