Aquatic Risk Management Toolbox

Organisation: University of Brighton in the AquaManche Project
Location: European
Type: Tools & approaches
The Aquatic Management of Catchments for Health & Environment (AquaManche) Project aimed to deliver practical tools to improve prediction, mitigation and management of river, estuarine and coastal waters in the France (Channel) - England region using the innovative application of microbial source tracking (MST).
The Aquatic Risk Management Toolbox (ARMT) brings together monitoring, microbial source tracking, catchment modelling tools and a web-based public information system, in order to predict risk and inform future management within river catchments in the cross-border region.
This ‘toolbox’ approach, in which a number of methods are used in combination, provides important information regarding the most likely sources of faecal contamination present within water samples from different sites within a study catchment.


The Catchment-Based Approach website is designed to showcase the work of catchment partnerships aross England and Wales and to encourage the sharing and adoption of best practice in stakeholder-led catchment managment planning, delivery and evaluation.
