River Ter

The River Ter is 31km long and is a catchment in its own right. It has multiple directives that work to protect it, including the Freshwater Fish Directive (Headwaters to Great Leighs STW, Great Leighs to Chelmer), the Nitrates Directive and the Urban Waste Water Treatment Directive.

This map shows the current projects; potential, in progress and completed, for the River Ter.
