Working together to benefit water environments for people and wildlife.


Healthy rivers and lakes provide benefits to us all, from recreation to industry and drinking water to wildlife. Managing these environments and balancing the diverse demands placed on them is complex.

West Cumbria Catchment Partnership is a network of local organisations and communities working together to improve our precious freshwater environments. We prioritise, plan and deliver actions to:

• Improve water quality
• Increase wildlife habitat
• Reduce flood risk

Our integrated approach from source to sea means we make real and positive change.
