Designed & Built By
The River Restoration Centre offers technical advice and information on specific
projects as well asgeneral river restoration related advice. Queries on
all aspects of river management are dealt with through the Centre staff
and our network of Advisors who have a wealth of practical experience
in river engineering, hydrology, geomorphology, ecology and river management.
If we can't answer your query then we'll give you the contact details
for someone that can through our referral service which incorporates a
catalogue of practitioners, product suppliers and specialist consultants.
Detailed Project Advice
Specific project advice
often can't be given over the phone as every river is unique. A site visit
may be necessary which can be agreed by discounted services to organisation,
individual and student members or as part of a service level agreement between
Corporate members and the Centre. We are a not-for-profit organisation therefore
charges for additional time and services over and above your membership
benefits are charged solely to cover our costs and keep the Centre here
for you. Where budgets can't stretch to site visits RRC can provide more
written comments on river restoration
and enhancement proposals if provided with
detailed project information, although this is less beneficial.

If you wish to find out about river restoration and enhancement schemes
in your area you can contact the Centre and request a search through our inventory of UK river projects which
currently totals around 1,040 schemes spread throughout England, Wales,
Scotland and Ireland. We can also point you to other sources of information including manuals and texts on river restoration and enhancement.
Promotion and training
We provide river restoration training workshops which can be tailored
to meet the needs of individual organisations. For more information on
workshops go to the Conferences and Workshops page on the sidebar menu.
RRC is often asked to give presentations at relevant seminars and conferences
or to give tours of river restoration projects. For
a list of presentations and tours given click here.
Enquiries will be answered by email, fax, phone or site visit. The
level of advice and assistance given is up to you and your membership of the Centre.
