Late last year I attended the Action for the River Kennet (ARK) Annual General Meeting, at which an update about the effects of the July 2013 chlorpyrifos pollution incident was handed out. I am sure that many will be interested to read the update which you can read here.
The RP website and ARMI database will be offline for a few hours during the afternoon of Tuesday 9th February 2016.
In addition, short intermitent interuptions may be experienced between January and 31st March 2016 whilst ARMI database improvements are delivered.
Your patience is appreciated during this time, please accept apologies on behalf of RP and the FBA for any inconvenience caused and report details of any persistent problems to Ben Fitch (firstname.lastname@example.org).
