The Dee Catchment Partnership is working to protect, enhance and restore the waters of the River Dee Catchment. These waters include the River Dee, its tributary burns, lochs and wetlands, as well as the habitats and species that depend on them. The River Dee is regarded as one of the cleanest Scottish rivers but impacts from a range of sources have significant collective impacts.
The Dee Catchment Partnership works towards addressing these impacts through integrated catchment management. This is achieved by communicating and coordinating management practises across the catchment and providing information and support. This integrated approach to catchment management results in cleaner water and more stable flow levels bringing a better environment for wildlife, less severe droughts and floods, and an improved environment for all river users.
