What is Earth Chattering?
Chattering is a interactive, map-based consultation tool developed by the Environment Agency in South
West to help communicate actions to improve local rivers, estuaries and coastal
waters. This is used to highlight pressures on water bodies in the South West and includes briefing notes on water quality.
The Environment Agency has a target to get 43% of water bodies to
good ecological status by 2015, but needs the involvement of
individuals, communities and partner organisations to help achieve this.
How you can help?
The Environment Agency is inviting individuals and communities to contribute their ideas and to help provide local intelligence about local conditions and local improvements. Through Earth Chattering you can:
share what you know about the rivers;
highlight a problem and share your ideas about how it might be tackled;
get involved in projects to improve water quality and habitats in this
