Sustainable work begins to improve water quality and biodiversity

 Work is to be carried out near the Marl Beck, north of Middleton-in-Teesdale to clean up pollution in more than 4km of rivers. Metals such as lead, cadmium and zinc are being washed out of wastes left by former mining activities and impacting water quality and wildlife.

This work is being carried out by Yorkshire Dales Rivers Trust on behalf of the Coal Authority and Environment Agency, as part of the North Pennines AONB Partnership’s Tees-Swale: naturally connected programme.

They will be removing and transporting 1500m3 of surplus subsoil from Raby Castle in Staindrop to the site near Marl Beck in September 2022. This material will be stockpiled on site in mounds before being spread over metal-contaminated mine wastes in spring/summer 2023. This will help encourage vegetation growth which increases biodiversity and reduces the risk of metals being washed into the rivers.

There will be a slight increase in traffic during this time with several lorries travelling between the site north-west of Middleton-in-Teesdale and Raby Castle each day.

During September we will also be improving drainage at the Marl Beck site to keep clean surface water away from the metal-contaminated mine wastes. This will help to decrease pollution of the rivers.

Teesdale Area Action Partnership (TAP)

TAP has money for grants.   If you are a charity or part of a charitable organisation (e.g. scouts; village hall) or not for profit organisation you can apply via Adam White the TAP coordinator.

Money is usually available for youth activities during half terms.

If you are putting on an activity for young people in the Easter holidays there is money to provide food. It has to be a new activity, long running Mum’s & Toddlers groups do not count.
