Restoration Surveys

IWA Restoration Committee Survey of Waterway Restoration Schemes

In summer 2009, IWA's former Restoration Committee distributed a survey questionnaire to voluntary bodies concerned with waterway restoration and construction schemes in the United Kingdom, the vast majority being IWA Corporate Members. A similar survey was made in 2002.

Over 90% of restoration bodies responded. The analysis of the factual information provided gives some useful information about the scale and growth of waterway restoration as well as indicators of which policies might be of benefit and of ‘what the others do’.
