Help us make water better for wildlife. Worcestershire Wildlife Trust (WWT) are working with Severn Trent Water (STW), other West Midlands Wildlife Trusts, the Environment Agency (EA) and other partners on river catchments to tackle pollution in watercourses across catchment areas and to bring them into good ecological condition. An important part of this programme is to work with farmers and landowners to reduce diffuse agricultural pollution into rivers and streams and to tackle water quality in Severn Trentís drinking water boreholes in the area.

 

The post-holder will deliver a programme of farmer/agronomist training events and one to one farm visits to promote resource protection and a reduction in diffuse water pollution from agriculture, with a focus on pesticides and nutrients. The project will also include supporting farmers through the Severn Trent Water capital grant scheme in target areas of the groundwater catchments, in order to support farm infrastructure changes to reduce diffuse water pollution. You will also work with Trust staff and other partners in catchment areas to develop ideas and projects to improve watercourses for wildlife through habitat creation and management.

 

This post is full time, commencing September 2019 until the end of March 2020 with the possibility of an extension.
