Fish Pass Working Group meeting 6th October 2011

For your information, a copy of a letter from Craig McGarvey, Yorkshire Area Manager of the EA, and a copy of the presentation which Black and Veatch made to various EA employees and Rivers Trust representatives this week.

I will be attending the meeting on 6th October on behalf of the Trust. Although Stuart (Jobbins) has been invited, he has told me that he will be unable to attend as he will be in Scotland. This may leave the way open for someone else to attend in his place. Please let me know if you are particularly interested in the fish pass issue and if you wish to attend.
