The Lower Tweed Priority Catchment Solutions to Protect Water Quality – Jedburgh

Date & Time: 24 January 2018 12:45 pm - 3.30pm
Address: Jedburgh TD8 6SS
Venues: Timpendean Farm  Topics: Water resource management


The River Tweed (Lower) is a Diffuse Pollution Priority Catchment.
As part of Scotland’s targeted approach to reduce pollution risk, work is underway in a number of ‘priority catchments’. The priority catchments* contain some of Scotland’s most important waters for conservation, drinking water, bathing and fishing, but they are also at heightened risk from diffuse pollution pressures which will lead to poor water quality.

Learn how to protect your water courses
This on farm diffuse pollution meeting looks at how to protect water course from steading run-off and livestock drinking and poaching. It also seeks to addresses the confusion about ditch clearing, gravel removal and when you do and don’t need to contact SEPA.

Why should you attend

  • A chance to see and discuss alternative watering systems, springback fencing and how they can work on your farm
  • Find out how and when to carry out field ditch maintenance
  • Learn about river erosion and when you can and can’t remove river gravel (dredging)
  • Find out about funding options to protect water quality under the Agri-Environment Climate Scheme
