Somerset Levels Draining Board Funding – Dr Andrew Pledger

Dr Andrew Pledger and colleagues have been awarded a further increase of £7000 to the funding secured from the Somerset Levels Draining Board.

This funding is being used to evaluate the ecological, hydromorphological and physico-chemical impacts of water injection dredging in the River Parrett, Somerset.

This work will contribute to the EPSRC (The Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council) water-food-energy project which fellow Loughborough academics Professor Paul Wood, Dr David Ryves and Dr Dapeng Yu are all involved in.
