UK Lake Restoration:
UK Lake Restoration Research
CEH has been monitoring sentinel lake ecosystems across the UK for many years. The data collected are extensive and provide invaluable insights into how and why lakes respond to environmental change.
CEH’s knowledge of how lake ecosystems respond to environmental change is routinely used to assess international, national, regional and site-specific lake management requirements. This knowledge has been incorporated into a range of decision support tools that can help lake managers diagnose water quality problems effectively and develop suitable restoration strategies.
CEH has been involved in lake restoration studies at a number of sites within the UK. These include:
Our long-term monitoring data can be accessed through the CEH Information Gateway.
CEH's Aquatic Mesocosm Facility is used by our Lake Ecosystems group to carry out experimental work.
