Cain and Tanat River Group (Llanfechain)
Formed in June 2008 the Cain and Tanat Rivers Group has the following aims:
Publicity to raise public awareness of the state of our local rivers. More
To help keep our environment tidy. More
In conjunction with the Environment Agency (EA) and the Severn Rivers Trust (SRT),
the group members monitor the quality of the river water. More
Perform invertebrate monitoring at multiple points on the local river system and
to send regular results to the Severn Rivers Trust to allow them to build records
for the ‘Health’ of our local river.
To record and help remove ‘invasive’ species of plants such as Himalayan Balsam
and Japanese Knotweed which are invading the area. More
To hold regular meeting to liaise with the EA and SRT and arrange “clean ups”, river
monitoring and to plan how to reduce the invasive species.
The group works closely with the Llanfyllin Riverside Project. More
Our local rivers are the rivers Fyllon, Alan, Cain, Tanat and Vyrnwy.
