Yorkshire Post – Wharfe partnership update

Testing of River Wharfe as part of Ilkley bathing water status project found elevated levels of E.coli at Grassington, Burnsall and Linton Falls

Monitoring of the River Wharfe will extend far beyond Ilkley once the new bathing water designation is activated after high levels of E.coli bacteria were found in other stretches of water.

The charity Yorkshire Dales Rivers Trust has been working with Yorkshire Water as part of the Wharfe Partnership which has been set up to manage the full length of the river from its source to its confluence with the Ouse, and last summer tested samples of water in its upper catchment.
