Latest Nutrient Offsetting

Nutrient Offsetting

The Foundation’s Natural Capital team are on hand to advise and to design nutrient offsetting schemes such as the creation of wetlands. Our work is not restricted to the Wye and Usk catchments either. For example, we have been carrying out initial scoping exercise for wetlands at sewage treatment works on behalf of Ceredigion Council in the Teifi catchment, another river which is largely failing to meet the WFD limits for phosphate. More specifically, we can offer the following services:
  • Evaluation of sites for integrated constructed wetlands
  • Design of wetlands
  • Provision of the plans and documents needed to progress a wetland to planning application stage
  • Phosphate Monitoring
  • Support on nutrient offsetting and nutrient credit systems
  • Soil Auguring
  • Analysis of topographical data to design piping arrangement.
For more information, please contact us by email or phone us on 01874 711 714.

We are grateful to the Heritage Lottery for supporting this area of our work.
