Our rivers and waterways support many habitats and offer sites for recreation.

To reverse biodiversity decline and tackle pollution we are a member of the River Douglas Catchment Partnership. This group works with communities, businesses, landowners, councils and farmers to improve water quality and nature in many of the major local watercourses in Chorley, including the River Douglas, River Yarrow, Carr Brook and the Leeds & Liverpool Canal.

At home you can make some small adjustments to save water and reduce energy bills. Our local water company has a website with ideas and free water saving gadgets.

If you have space a water butt can capture rain water to use in the garden or for washing cars. 

Our website has more information about grid, drain and flooding problems
