Informing instream channel maintenance works to sustain river ecosystem 
functioning and biodiversity

Supervisors: Dr Jon Harvey and Prof. Ian Cowx 

Project Description

Climate change is predicted to cause dramatic changes in UK rainfall patterns 
potentially leading to increased summer and winter flooding and subsequent 
possible damage to property and land use.

To minimise these potential problems, many rivers are being subjected to 
heavy channel maintenance works, but little is known about the impact of 
these activities on aquatic ecosystems, or the ecological status of the 
targeted rivers. The overall aim of the study will be to assess the impact of 
river and channel engineering works on aquatic biota, and identify remedial 
measures to ensure protection of aquatic ecosystem functioning and 

The findings will make a major contribution to understanding of how river and 
channel engineering activities influence aquatic fauna and flora, and provide 
practical guidance environmentally friendly and socially acceptable river 
engineering works
