How healthy is the Dee?

SEPA monitors a wide range of river conditions (e.g. water chemistry, flows, ecological factors) and these are analysed annually and reported on a five point scale. For 2013 (2014 data available soon) the overall condition of the 56 'Waterbodies' that make up the Dee system were:

Bad: 1

Poor: 13

Moderate: 18

Good: 22

High: 2

See SEPA; 'River Basin Managment Planning' for more information.
