Rivermead Nature Park
Milestone undertook a hydro-ecological, hydro-chemical and botanical assessment of this small but important alkaline fen for the Berks, Bucks & Oxfordshire Wildlife Trust. Restoration works were recommended and delivered, including a topographic survey to assist with procuring the works.
Steping Hill & Roughtor Marsh
Milestone supported Natural England to assess the hydro-ecology of these remote wetlands on Bodmin Moor. Surface hydrology, hydrogeology, botany and bryophyte surveys facilitated future restoration projects.
Higher Moors SSSI
Milestone supported the Isles of Scilly Wildlife Trust to understand the mechanics of this coastal wetland providing botanical, topographic and water quality surveys. Wetland hydrology training enabled IoSWT to install monitoring for increased efficiency.
Lea Valley SSSI
Milestone undertook a hydro-ecological scoping study for the Lee Valley Regional Park Authority at two SSSI sites with very differing pressures. The work identified a number of required management changes and recommended further studies.
Lower Moors SSSI
Milestone installed a wetland hydrological monitoring network and conducted water quality analysis, botanical and topographical surveys. Working with the Council of the Isles of Scilly and IoSWT, Milestone quantified the site dynamics and developed a management plan.
Cothill Fen SAC
Milestone supported BBOWT and Natural England to understand the site hydrology and inform site management. Milestone delivered the project by developing an effective water level monitoring network including dipwells, logging instruments and topographic surveys.
Spartum Fen SSSI
Milestone are assisting the Freshwater Habitats Trust to understand the hydrological functioning of this SSSI site, including installation of wetland hydrological monitoring.
Bolton Fell Moss
Milestone are working with Natural England to review the requirement for hydrological monitoring following the completion of a major phase of restoration over the last decade.
Nationally Significant Infrastructure Project
Milestone are supporting Friends of the Earth to understand the impact on designated sites from planning submissions for a Nationally Significant Infrastructure Project. This included presenting the wetland hydrological impacts at a high profile Planning Enquiry.
