Chalk Streams in Cambridge.

The Rush stream

Did you know that chalk streams are quite unique and precious habitats, due to their particular water quality, temperature and Oxygen levels? They provide a specialist habitat for certain species which is globally rare. Did you also know that 85% of chalk streams are found in the UK and most of these in the South and South East of England and some of them are found right here in Cambridge?

In response to this a specialist analysis of our local chalk streams has been commissioned by the City Council and is being carried out by the Wildlife trust and The Brown Trout Trust. The aim is to assess the health of these streams and then  design a programme of action for local groups and stakeholders to fund and implement together.
