Latest news and events

1:30-3:30pm. Water Quality - let's team up and clean up the River Brent! - an exciting programme of talks and chance for all to share their knowledge and ideas.

Everyone in the Brent Rivers and Valleys catchment is invited and very welcome to share their experiences and suggestions for improving WQ and reducing pollution in the River Brent and its tributary brooks and streams.

Let's work together to help local wildlife thrive and more people to enjoy their riverside environments!

10:00am – 12:30pm on Monday 25th February 2019 at Harrow Council, Civic Centre, HA1 2XY


Pollution can find its way into urban rivers via surface water outfalls (drains) as a result of misconnected plumbing.

The Brent Catchment Partnership is looking for volunteers to help conduct Outfall Safari surveys throughout the Upper Silk Stream in Harrow and Barnet. This involves surveying stretches of the river to map and record the impact of outfalls with the help of a mobile app. 

All training and equipment will be provided. Please click here to register for this event.

"...surveying outfalls and sewage is strangely compelling and fun!.." (Outfall Safari surveyor, 2019)

When: Saturday 12th January 2019  09:00 to 12:00

Where: Costons Brook, Perivale Park

Summer's arrived on the River Brent.. and there's so much to get involved in!

Across the River Brent catchment, we've several projects up and running.. improving access to the riverside green spaces, working with nature to reduce flood risk, restoring river habitat, tackling water quality and monitoring changes with citizen science volunteers.

With so much going on it's been hard to find time to keep everyone updated. Please keep an eye on all partners websites for news of forthcoming events. 

Please get in touch via the 'Contact Us' page if you're interested in taking part in river restoration, natural flood management and water quality citizen science activities as well as clean ups and conservation activities.

Looking forward to seeing you soon in 2019,
