  • Stour catchment logoWelcome to the Stour Catchment Initiative

    The Stour Catchment Initiative (SCI) is a partnership involving a wide range of groups and organisations that share the common aim of improving the water environment of the Stour. The partners work collaboratively to ensure that the Stour catchment meets the needs of people for water, food, industry and recreation whilst supporting the wildlife that depends on it. (For more information on catchments, see the related downloads section on the right.)

    These pages are the home of the Stour catchment plan and have been a collaborative effort by the SCI partners. They outline the issues in the catchment and how we will improve the river for people and wildlife. It will also help us to meet objectives under the Water Framework Directive (WFD), a European Union directive aiming to protect and improve all water environments, including surface water and groundwater.

    The map below shows the Stour Catchment, its rivers, the water bodies that make up the catchment, their status under WFD, and a brief description of the sections of the catchment, the elements that influence the rivers and consequently their status.
