Carmarthenshire acid project helps fish and insects

A project tackling high levels of acidity in a river should be given the go-ahead across Wales, a charity has said.

Carmarthenshire Rivers Trust is concerned Natural Resources Wales (NRW) may not allow an extension of its liming project in the River Doethie.

It claims a dramatic transformation of a catchment that was failing EU water quality and wildlife standards.

NRW said its focus was on stopping pollutants from reaching rivers in the first place.

Caroline Orr and Brian Jones of the Carmarthenshire Rivers Trust show how the project has helped fish and mayflies flourish.
