We are delighted to announce that our Charity has been awarded funding from the Stichting European Open Rivers Programme. The Deveron, Bogie and Isla Rivers Charitable Trust has been awarded a grant of € 36,071.00 over 12 months for the Detailed Design and SEPA Licence Application for the full removal of the Mill of Eden Weir (Dam).  The removal of the weir will allow uninterrupted access for the Atlantic salmon, sea trout,trout and the endangered European eel to over 11km of habitat.

The removal of the weir is part of a much wider catchment restoration project where our team is currently working with local farmers to increase land buffer strips near the river to reduce diffuse pollution and also to increase tree planting. It will also contribute to improving the classification of the watercourse under the EU Water Framework Directive.
