Fluvial Audit of the River Dee

The River Dee has been designated as a candidate Special Area for Conservation designated under the European Habitats Directive, and parts of the system have also Site of Special Scientific Interest for geomorphological and physiographic features.

The Countryside Council for Wales commissioned GeoData to undertake a Fluvial Geomorphological Audit and submerged aquatic plant audit of the River Dee between Bala Lake and Chester Weir (155km). The inventory of morphological features will be used to identify and understand the geomorphological processes which influence and control channel activity and the distribution of Ranunculion Fluitans and Callitrichio-Batrachion habitat, in order to allow CCW to produce Conservation Objectives for the site.
