The Roding, Beam & Ingrebourne Catchment Partnership is a focused group of local stakeholders who are working together through a Catchment Based Approach (CaBA) to improve the rivers in the Roding, Beam & Ingrebourne Catchment and bring direct on-the-ground benefit to people and wildlife. The Friends Group is just one of the members of this partnership. This Catchment Plan sets out the required actions which will seek to improve the physical functioning and condition of the rivers and tributaries within the Roding, Beam & Ingrebourne Catchment, thus benefiting both wildlife and people.

How well do you know your drains?
It is very easy to make things disappear down the drain, but have you ever thought about where it all ends up? There is a common misconception that everything you pour or flush away at home ends up in a sewage treatment plant, but that isn’t quite how it works. If your plumbing at home is incorrect, dirty water could be draining straight into your local river or beach. As the property owner you are responsible for fixing any faulty drainage connections, even if these were in place prior to you owning the property.
If you do not fix your faulty drains, you’re directly affecting your local environment and could face a fine of up to...£50,000
Please see the leaflets on our Documents page for more information.
