River Naver Catchment Restoration

cbec led a team with the EnviroCentre and Mike Donaghy Associates to develop a prioritized catchment restoration plan on the River Naver, Sutherland.

The primary objective of the project was, through reinstatement of natural geomorphic processes, to improve habitat conditions for Freshwater Pearl Mussels while achieving other ecosystem services, notably maintenance of ‘good ecological status’ and sustainable flood risk management. Stakeholder consultation and community engagement were key stages in development of the restoration plan.
