Who we are


The Dee Catchment Partnership represents and supports those with responsibilities for water management in the common aim of restoring habitat and water quality in the catchment. Our partners include statutory agencies, research institutions, organisations and interest groups, as well as land managers taking steps to protect water quality, and individual householders looking after their septic tanks and taking steps to save water.

A management group represents the partnership's core funding bodies and overseas the project, meeting approximately four times a year. The development and implementation of the Management Plan and our current and previous projects display the focus of our work. 



The Partnership employs a Partnership Manager Dr Susan Cooksley (hosted by the James Hutton Institute) and an Outreach Officer Marina Piper (hosted by the River Dee Trust).
